Zielinski: ‘Our midfield is among the best in Europe’

Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski confirmed that he is fully recovered after picking up a knock and explained why the Partenopei have faith in coach Luciano Spalletti. Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss in Napoli, the Polish international touched on a number of things, starting with his physical condition:

My condition is good, I did all the training today and did not feel any discomfort.

Ajax Napoli? It was a magical evening not only for us but for all Neapolitans who support Napoli. We went behind, but there was plenty of time to come back into the game and so we did. We are happy.

The coach congratulated us for the beautiful game, but he reminded us that we haven’t done anything yet. Against Cremonese it will be very difficult, it will be another match. This team prepares for these matches very seriously, we have to stay focused and play our game. We always have to work, even if we performed a masterpiece in Amsterdam, there are so many important matches. In Cremona we have to be fully focused and give everything to win.

Best match ever? I don’t know, even this year there were very good matches that we won with many goals. It was one of the biggest games, in a stadium with Ajaxs’ history it was really a great victory. We are really happy, we are doing very good things, we have to keep working.

New signing? It’s not bad for being a new project, the new players immediately made their contribution. The club has done a great job, very important players have left, new ones have arrived who are little known but have immediately made their great contribution.

Boniek’s comments? I know him very well, I am gratified by his words. He has won everything, he is one of the greatest Polish players. He sees so many good things in me, I hope to give him a lot of satisfaction during this World Cup. I am doing well, but there is still room for improvement. I hope this season will become a great one and I want to score a lot of goals and provide assists. But the important thing is to help the team to get great results.

It also shows on the pitch. If one guy scores goals, it’s not just him, we are all very important. This spirit makes us win, we hope to keep it forever. Ours is one of the strongest midfield for sure.

A leader? Let’s say yes, I try to give my best for the team. Now you can see the results. It all started with Guidolin in Udine, I am pleased with his compliments. I thank him and hope to give him many more satisfactions, so we will all be happy.

Better than Sarri’s Napoli? I hope so, we are a very good team. There are things we do well, we are showing it but we are just at the beginning. I am sure the team will do everything possible to turn dreams into reality.

The Scudetto? It is the dream is of all the people who support Napoli, that the ‘S’ in ‘Spalletti’ is the one of dreams.”
