Carlo Ancelotti has praised his men for the manner of their victory against Premier League giants Liverpool.
Napoli were held to a goalless draw in their opening group stage game against Red Star, but have bounced back with a win.
Insigne bounced on a rebound to score the winner for Napoli in the 90th minute, to the delight of Ancelotti.
“The team did well throughout the game, we never lost control, were always very focused, above all when defending and allowed Liverpool practically nothing,” Ancelotti told Sky Italia .
“We had the chances to score earlier, but I think we timed it well. We scored at the right time… If Mertens had scored a few minutes earlier, it would’ve been more time suffering!”
Ancelotti added: “It means a lot to us to have won against the finalists from last year.
“It’s important for the confidence of the players, and these games give extra focus, but also some worries. I just told them to enjoy themselves, and it went well.
“We showed this group won’t just be hard for Napoli, but for everyone involved. After the disappointment of the first game, this is a great injection of confidence, but there’s still a long way to go in this group.”
