Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti won’t be giving up on winning the Serie A title anytime soon, despite admitting they will need “miracles” to keep up with Juventus
The Light Blues find themselves already eight points behind Juventus in second-place in the league table after 14 matches.
The Bianconeri are chasing an eighth consecutive crown this season and have only dropped points on one occasion in a 1-1 draw with Genoa in October.
But Ancelotti, who won the Serie A with AC Milan in the 2003/04 campaign, is in no mood to give up at this stage.
“No [Juve are not uncatchable], they are very strong, very consistent, but unattainable, no,” Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“In my football experience I have not found unbeatable teams yet, [but] to keep up with Juventus, you have to work miracles.
“We do not know [what Napoli can achieve this season], I think this team has a lot of potential and showed it in the Champions League, which was very difficult.
“We have grown a lot in personality, because these games help us to grow, we are a team that cannot play at a low pace. To succeed we must always work at a high pace.”
Napoli will host Frosinone at the Stadio San Paolo this Saturday in their next Serie A fixture.
