Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is optimistic about his side’s Serie A title chances, stating that he and his team-mates are ‘on the case’.
The club currently sit second on the table – two points behind leaders Juventus – and Cavani believes that the Scudetto is a realistic target this season.
“Winning the championship is not a dream so far. Juve are easily reachable. Let’s just say that the team and I are on the case,” Cavani told reporters.
“I did not come to Naples to do more than (Diego) Maradona. I came here to get into people’s hearts and leave a mark in the history of the club.”
Cavani was full of gratitude for his current situation, but admitted that his competitive nature was a huge driving force behind his success and that Napoli must be prepared to try anything to be victorious.
“For me it is an exceptional time and I have to thank, first and foremost, my family,” he said.
“Whenever I’m on the field I want to win at all costs, I struggle to digest the defeats.
“In life you can be as gentle as doves, but on the field we players have to be eagles.”
