Mazzarri looks at big picture

14 May 2012 16:08

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri says this season should be considered a success despite missing out on a Champions League berth.

Mazzarri's side beat Siena 2-1 in their final match of the Serie A season, but could only manage a fifth place in the league standings behind Udinese and Lazio.

However, they still have the chance to finish the season with some silverware with a showdown against Serie A champions Juventus in the Coppa Italia final still to come next week.

"Yes, I have some regrets. You know very well that I'm never satisfied and since my arrival here I have tried to share this mentality with the guys," Mazzarri said.

"Our aim was to get as high as we could and that's how it ended. We wasted some points on the way and we had our own destiny in our hands again in Bologna - and we all know how it ended there.

"We need to accept that. It's still an important season for us, because - I repeat - we don't need to judge our season only on what happened in Serie A.

"We also need to consider the Champions League too and the Coppa Italia that is not over yet.

"We need to consider the season as a whole, and overall I can say that we have had another great season."

Napoli finished with 61 points in the Serie A and were knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea in the quarter-finals.
