Udinese head coach Stefano Colantuono: 'Napoli best team in Italy'

Udinese head coach Stefano Colantuono believes that Napoli are currently the best side playing in Serie A, stating that his team must nullify the Azzurri's creativity.

Udinese head coach Stefano Colantuono has suggested that Napoli are currently the best side competing in the top tier of Italian football.

The 53-year-old feels that his team must nullify the creativity of Maurizio Sarri's outfit to get anything from their game away to the Azzurri.

"The best team in the Serie A are our opponents, but we can make their lives difficult if we have the right attitude," Colantuono told reporters ahead of the tie.

"We want to do something a bit different and find a system that gives us more balance, perhaps with Bruno Fernandes playing as a second striker.

"It is necessary that we do a good job in stifling their creative players and prevent them from having too much time."

Udinese currently lie in 15th spot in the league table, while Napoli reside in fourth.
