Cavani sounds off on Napoli return

“Do I think about returning to Italy? Certainly. The future of footballers is unpredictable, I would like to return where I spent three fantastic years that allowed me to be here in Paris. Would I return to Napoli? Why not? Here in Paris I always watched Napoli on television as long as it was compatible with training and matches here. I confess this season I’m getting passionate, I find great pleasure in team playing well and getting results. I think Napoli can easily compete for the top spots in standings.”

Inter Milan maintains 100% record as Napoli makes a mockery out of Lazio

Chievo Verona v Inter Milan 0-1

AC Chievo Verona v FC Internazionale Milano - Serie A

I was trying to watch this game but too many things were going on at once making my concentrate hard to follow. However, I want to comment on Inter Milan’s 100% record after four games. So far, Mancini is a happy lark this season and I must say, he still looks terrific!

Napoli v Lazio 5-0

SSC Napoli v SS Lazio - Serie A

They came for revenge and they got their revenge all right.

Napoli opened the account early in the 14th minute through Higuain. Before the half time whistle, Allan added another in the 35th minute. Second half was as they were in the first. Insigne scored in the 48th minute giving Napoli a huge boost at 3-nothing. Higuain claimed a brace in the 56th minute further embarrassing Lazio at this point. Gabbiadini grabbed a goal in the 79th minute and this brought the curtains down on a goaltastic evening in Naples!
