Amadou Diawara has promised Napoli will “fight until the bitter end” in the Serie A title race after his first league goal kept Maurizio Sarri’s men within four points of Juventus.
It looked as though Napoli would slip up on Sunday as they trailed Chievo at home, having earlier missed a penalty through Dries Mertens, but they kept going and got their reward in the closing stages.
Arkadiusz Milik drew the hosts level after 89 minutes before Diawara struck in the 93rd minute, showing the character that he believes will be key in the final weeks of the season.
“There’s a long way to go and we have to win every game,” the 20-year-old midfielder told Mediaset Premium. “We fight to the bitter end on every ball, from the first minute to the last, and always try to win.”
