“The Christmas break did us good,” said Mihajlovic in his Press conference.
“It allowed us to recharge our batteries. It was a really difficult game against Parma, more on a psychological level than a physical one, as we were very concentrated and it took a lot out of us.
“We will as always go to Naples in order to play our football. Napoli are very strong, especially in attack, but they have a few holes in defence and we must do well to make the most of them.”
Samp are still unbeaten under Mihajlovic’s guidance and have Eder back from injury.
“We’ve done well so far and I have nothing to complain about, but we know the difficult moments will come and we must be prepared to overcome them.”
