Napoli’s Sarri speaks ahead of Roma match

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri spoke today ahead of his team’s clash against Roma in Naples, here his words:

“Roma? It’s important team, perhaps now the most important in Italy for investments. Roma is the natural antagonist of Juventus. Roma tired after the Champions League? I don’t know, but what I do know is that in the long-run, the Europa League penalizes you more. The league gives us only one extra day for time so us and Fiorentina are penalized the most despite what the table says.”

“It will be a match between Higuain and Dzeko? It’s reductive to say this because there are other important players, but they are great footballers.”
