Napoli’s Callejon Praises Man City’s Coach, but Remains Optimistic of Victory

ROME – Napoli winger Jose Callejon said on Tuesday he was optimistic about his side’s chances to win the Champions League tie against Manchester City, although he praised his rivals’ Spanish coach, Pep Guardiola.

Napoli is set to host Manchester City on Wednesday in the group stage match of the UEFA Champions League.

“We have the utmost respect for Manchester City, but we fear nobody,” the Spain winger said in the pre-match press conference.

He stressed that Guardiola was very strong, but the Italian side was strong too and confident it would get the three points.

“We are capable of producing a big performance and we’ll give our all to get a positive result,” Callejon reiterated.

The winger also lauded Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri and his positive influence on the Italian team.

“Manchester City have a wonderful playing philosophy, but Sarri has given us a winning mentality,” Callejon said.

Napoli lost 2-1 against Manchester City on Oct. 17 in the Champions League group stage match, when the English side dominated the first 30 minutes of the match, but then suffered against the Italian opponent.

“We came out of that game with greater confidence and conviction because despite the defeat we caused them problems and could have equalized,” Callejon recalled.

The Spain winger added that his side needed to focus and play as if it was a final because the win could “make all the difference in terms of us going through.”
