Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has described the upcoming match against Milan on Monday evening as a final, while also revealing the source of the dedication his players have shown this season.
The clash on Monday night will be between the top two sides in Serie A as the Rossoneri lead the league while the Partenopei sit three points behind.
"We leave Europe with our heads held high, now we wait for another final against a great team, but I don't want to talk about the Scudetto," Mazzarri was quoted as saying by Rai.
"With the players I act like a father to his children: I am strict when necessary, but I also know when to listen to their problems. That's why they always give their best."
