Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik insists they can haul back Serie A leaders Juventus.

Napoli are already nine points behind Juve as Serie A prepares to head into the winter break.

“Let’s see how the season goes,” Milik shrugged in an interview with Channel 21. “They’ve won so much and they’re the favourites, but the title race is still open.”

The Pole added: “Naples? The best thing is that there are great places near the sea, there wasn’t that opportunity where I’ve been before.

“When I go to the restaurant I choose a place by the sea, it’s very relaxing for me. I can’t say which restaurant I go to, otherwise a load of fans would turn up!

“The fans are very passionate, but it’s better not to say where I spend my free time!

“The Neapolitans are passionate, sometimes too much so, they want to hug you and hold you. I appreciate their support though.

“Neapolitan pizza? I’ll admit, it’s the best I’ve ever had. I like the Neapolitan cuisine, but I can’t say it’s conducive to the diet of a footballer!

“The pasta and mozzarella is very good, but you can’t eat it every day.”

Milik expects to be back from his knee injury in the New Year.
