Insigne: 'Still thinking about chance'

Lorenzo Insigne admits he is “still thinking about that chance” he missed in the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal, but still believes Napoli can turn it around.

The Partenopei have a mountain to climb in order to reach the Europa League semi-final following the 2-0 loss in London.

“I am still thinking about that chance, because an away goal would’ve been important. I got there too stretched out, it went badly,” the captain told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have to think about the errors we made and ensure we don’t make them again, because we’ve got it all to do next week.

“We lacked some courage at the start, it was one of our worst performances of the season, but we need to focus and do it differently in the second leg.

“Arsenal are a great team, we saw that tonight and already knew before. Having said that, we had the chances to score and they were simply more effective with their scoring opportunities.

“We must play with the right determination and intensity next Thursday to turn this around.”

Insigne was asked if there were any tactical changes Napoli had planned and failed to implement.

“Our preparations were different and we readjusted to cause them problems, but it didn’t work because they were so aggressive on us with every ball.

“I still believe we can turn this around, because we had the chances tonight. There’s no point crying over spilt milk, the first leg is done and dusted, now we have to focus on the second.”
