SSC Napoli Training and Press Conference

Aurelio De Laurentiis thanks Ancelotti for a very positive season

“The season has been very positive for Napoli, because with a new Coach we changed mentality and our approach to the game,” De Laurentiis told reporters via Football Italia.

“Every rival has his strengths and weaknesses, so a defender must find the right key to neutralizing him. Mbappé is very, very fast. We all saw him for France at the World Cup and again in Ligue 1.”

“He is very difficult to stop, so I tried to anticipate his movements. It worked well on Tuesday and I am happy,” he added.

“I am working to improve myself. I don’t need a transfer window or any gossip to do that. I’m a professional and every day I try to become a better player.”
