Sarri: Napoli can still improve

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has played down his side's 7-1 thrashing of Bologna on Saturday, insisting that his side have a lot of room for improvement.

The Partenopei have been praised for their attractive style of football recently, but Sarri believes they have many flaws to iron out.

He said, “Are we playing perfect football? We allowed more than 10 shots to our opponents, four goalscoring opportunities. That’s definitely too much.

“Am I angry to see Juve nine points clear, despite our football? No, it’s not boxing. You don’t win on points, you have to win on the pitch.

“Others are better at doing that, even if we’re more easy on the eye. The strongest team is the one at the top of the table.”

Juventus are top of the Serie A standings with 57 points from 23 games, while third-placed Napoli are nine points off the pace.
