Gokhan Inler: 'Marseille made it hard'

Gokhan Inler admits that Napoli's win over Marseille was not easy, but the victory is all that matters.

Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler has admitted that Marseille were very hard to beat in his side's 3-2 Champions League Group F win over the French side on Wednesday night.

Marseille went ahead and then equalised later on before Gonzalo Higuain's eventual winner, but Inler said that the points, not the performance, are what matters.

"It was a really difficult game for us and Marseille played really well, but all that mattered was winning and we kept at it, so compliments to us all," he told UEFA.com.

"We made too many mistakes getting the ball out of defence and needed to play it around a bit better. If we'd controlled our possession better then we wouldn't have suffered so much.

"Borussia Dortmund are going to give it everything against us, but we'll give it our all too, even if it's not going to be easy at their place."

Napoli are currently second in the group, level on nine points with Arsenal.
