Maggio takes Mazzarri role

Walter Mazzarri is still struggling with kidney stones, so Christian Maggio fired up Napoli ahead of the Cagliari game. “We're ready for the final sprint.”

The Coach missed both training sessions on Friday and Saturday due to the pain of dealing with kidney stones and it's unclear if he'll be fit for the bench tomorrow.

“The boss is made of hard stuff. I spoke to him this morning and I'm sure he'll be there, as he never gives in,” said Maggio.

Panucci wants Cannavaro call-up

Christian Panucci is astonished that Napoli defender Paolo Cannavaro is not a part of the Italian national set-up.

"To not give a chance to Cannavaro after the season he has had is hard to explain," noted the former Azzurri international.

"I don't think it is a case of Italy boss Cesare Prandelli not liking him, but Prandelli should think about Paolo.

"He's really grown in the last few years and deserves a call-up. His form is consistently high and it's right that he should be selected."

Trap hails Verona-like Napoli

Giovanni Trapattoni has likened the present Napoli side to Osvaldo Bagnoli's legendary Verona outfit of the 1980s.

Bagnoli's Stadio Bentegodi boys surprisingly became League champions in 1985 for the first time after slaying Italian football's traditional giants.

"Walter Mazzarri's side reminds me a lot of the miraculous Verona team which won the Scudetto under Bagnoli," stated the Republic of Ireland boss, who was in charge of Juventus at the time.
