The agent of Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro insists the Azzurri have what is needed to finish ahead of Milan in Serie A.
After falling nine points adrift of leaders Juventus, the struggling Azzurri are now just two points clear of a resurgent third-placed Diavolo.
“I am convinced that this negative period has been a blessing because it has proven to fans that Napoli were in no position to compete with Juventus,” Enrico Fedele told Radio CRC.
“Milan are not stronger than Napoli, though, they have won a lot of their games in a haphazard manner.
“We Neapolitans are people of exaggeration and feats on a Sunday are not enough to make a great player a champion.
“Napoli, in many of its elements, has suffered the burden of having to catch Juventus without having that possibility.”
Napoli entertain Atalanta at the weekend after collecting just four points from the last 15 available to them in Serie A.
