helped Napoli come from behind to win.

Speaking after the game, the Italian coach said he cannot blame his men.

“I cannot reproach my players for anything this evening. We put in a worse performance against Empoli, but today unfortunately we paid the price for errors,”


told DAZN


“We weren’t as precise technically and lost the ball a few too many times in the second half. Napoli played very well, but in football when you don’t win, you can only shut up and work hard.”

“Hopefully we can start the Champions League in a better way than the Serie A season. At this moment, we pay a heavy price for every single error, but these moments can happen in football. We should’ve been sharper, gone for the second goal when 1-0 up.

“We conceded the equalizer and then this goal on a corner. There are many positives from the lads too. If you make mistakes like that, then naturally you’re going to concede on the counter.

“I saw giant steps forward, the lads did everything they had to this evening, but there are moments during the season when the ball goes in and others when it doesn’t,”

continued Allegri



have only picked up one point from their opening three Serie A matches, while Napoli are at the top of the league with nine points from three games.

“It’s a long season, we need to chase the other teams down and there is plenty of time to recover. I’ve had worst moments than this. What matters now is Tuesday, putting in a good performance against Malmo, then we’ve got Milan on Sunday.

“It’s disappointing, as we had started strong tonight, but of the five goals we’ve conceded this season, quite a few of them were our own fault.”
