Napoli stars hail departing Mazzarri

20 May 2013 15:01

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani and midfielder Blerim Dzemaili have paid tribute to departing manager Walter Mazzarri.

Mazzarri has opted not to extend his contract at Estadio San Paolo and has been linked with a move to Roma and Inter for next season.

The 51-year-old guided the Naples club to second in the Serie A table this season, but his side finished the campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Roma on Sunday.

And Cavani lauded the effort of Mazzarri for turning Napoli into title contenders.

"It's a pleasure to have been trained by a coach such as Mazzarri," the Uruguay international said on his Twitter account.

"I have learned so much from, and together with the whole group we brought Napoli among the most important clubs in Italy."

Cavani has scored 29 goals in 34 league appearances for the club this season to lead the Serie A goalscoring charts.

And his sentiments were echoed by team-mate Dzemaili, who hailed the success Mazzarri had brought to the club, despite not always seeing eye to eye with the manager.

"We had our ups and downs, we had different ideas, but I spent two years of my life winning a cup and coming second," he posted on Instagram.

"I am left with nothing than to simply say thank you."
