Pandev: 'Prepared for Arsenal'

Goran Pandev enjoyed his brace against Genoa and now Napoli “prepare for the Champions League game with Arsenal.”

The Macedonian broke his duck for the season in Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Marassi, taking advantage of a more attacking role with Gonzalo Higuain rested.

“We wanted to bring home the three points after the ugly night on Wednesday,” said Pandev, referring to their 1-1 home draw with bottom of the table Sassuolo.

“We got right back on track and deserved this victory. I prefer to play as a support striker, but I go where the Coach asks me to. The important thing is that the team wins.

“The squad rotation is inevitable, as there’s a tough fixture list and everyone is needed. We’ll see where we end up.

“Now we have to forget about this game and prepare for Tuesday’s Champions League match with Arsenal.”

However, defender Raul Albiol went off at half-time against Genoa with a muscular problem and is therefore in doubt for the trip to the Emirates.
