Napoli coach Francesco Calzona is determined to see the Partenopei finish the season on a high despite their European hopes being further hit by Monday’s 1-1 draw with struggling Udinese.

Victor Osimhen nodded home to give Napoli the lead in the 51st minute before Udinese forward Isaac Success bundled in the leveller in stoppage time.

The result – which came on the same ground where Napoli clinched the Scudetto last season – leaves them nine points adrift of Atalanta and Roma, who sit fifth and sixth in Serie A respectively, with just nine to play for.

“Clearly I thought we could do better, without a doubt. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case,” Calzona told DAZN.

“We have to ask the management about the future of Napoli, it’s clear that we have the qualities to do better.

“It was a disappointing and unfortunate year, but we absolutely must finish this championship on a high note.”
