Behrami admits Napoli will face pressure this season
The Swiss international believes the whole team will have to deal with the expectations this upcoming season, as Azzurri fans want to improve on last year’s title challenge after finishing runners up to rivals Juventus.
“We are a squad that has been built to do well,” the player told the Corriere del Ticino. “The unknown will come from the desire of the fans who will no longer be happy with second place.”
“It will be a long and hard season, with an autumn that will be packed with fixtures.
“As well as the games with Napoli, there will be four international matches that will be worth a place at the World Cup in Brazil.”
Behrami joined the Partenopei in July 2012 and the 28-year-old is regarded as a key figure in the midfield for new boss Rafa Benitez.
