Reina backtracks on 2nd place hopes

Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who over the last few months has maintained that Napoli will finish in second place ahead of Roma, seemed to backtrack today on his claim:

“We’re not giving up on second place, but if it doesn’t happen we still want to try and improve our record. It’s been a very good season with the number of wins, the points we have, and the mentality we’ve constructed.”
