Hysaj: ‘Napoli are angry’

Elseid Hysaj says Napoli are “all angry about the loss to Atalanta”, so they want to bounce back against Verona.

The Partenopei were eliminated from the Coppa Italia on Tuesday night, and the full-back wants to use that as motivation for their Scudetto chase.

“We’re all angry about the loss to Atalanta,” Hysaj said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“It will give us the strength to move forward in the league though. There’s nothing we can do now, we went out. We have to take that and turn it into something good for the future.

“We have to start that straight away against Hellas, we have to be aggressive and give our all to win. We want to maintain high levels, win games, and start the year well.

“We’re still calm because the road is very long, we need to take it one game at a time and try to win them all. It’s too early to think about the Scudetto and other things.

“I think Roma and Inter can insert themselves into this fight between ourselves and Juventus, there are a lot of games left.

“So far that reason we have to think about ourselves.”
