Napoli full-back Mario Rui voiced his opinion that they deserved to win the Scudetto for the football they played, even though he himself admitted they still lack some other things.

Mathematically, they can still win the Scudetto, but just a Juve defeat would not be enough – they would need a goal difference swing of 17 in order to go ahead of their arch-rivals.

“Everyone saw that we gave our best,” Rui said, according to Football Italia.

“There’s also some regret about points dropped and wins missed. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to reach our dream, but we’ll keep going and try to get there next year.”

“Did we deserve the Scudetto? For how we played and what we showed every Sunday, yes. We play the best football, but we’re lacking in other things.”

“Now we have two important games to close the season well. We can get a record points total in Napoli history and give a final joy to the fans who always supported us.”

Rui added that they do indeed get better every year and cannot stop right now but should rather keep their momentum.
