Napoli Coach Walter Mazzarri Disappointed With Penalty Shootout Loss To Inter

Walter Mazzarri believes Napoli should have progressed to the next round of the Coppa Italia...
Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri was dejected following the Partenopei's penalty shootout loss to Inter in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

The Azzurri created a plethora of chances but couldn't capitalise and lost 5-4 on penalties.

"Leonardo is a good person, and I have a lot of admiration for him, but I don't understand what match he saw," Mazzarri told TuttoNapoli.net at the conclusion of the encounter.

"All one needs to do is look at the amount of shots on goal by Napoli to see how wrong this result is.

"I also have some serious doubts over some of the refereeing decisions. There was a handball against [Hugo] Campagnaro which wasn't awarded. As for the offside goal, it was offside, but only by a few millimetres.

"These are situations that a coach cannot control, therefore it is useless to speak about them. I am disappointed how the match went, but not with my players. I have nothing to tell them off for, but we did deserve to win," he concluded.
