Di Livio: Napoli set a great example for Italian football

Former Italy midfielder Angelo di Livio says Serie A fans should be proud of leaders Napoli.

Di Biagio has been impressed by the style of play employed by Napoli coach this season.

He told TMW: “The answer is obvious, they are doing a great championship. They play wonderfully both in Italy and in Europe. We need to take an example because winning is important but winning by playing well is even more important. Congratulations to them.

“Then in January it will be another championship but they also have an important advantage in terms of awareness.”

On the World Cup, Di Biagio added: “I don’t have a team I’ll be rooting for. The favourites are always the same. We have to see how they’ll be physically. Brazil, Argentina and France have something more, then there will be the usual surprise but I don’t know what it could be.”
