Napoli's return to the summit excites Cannavaro

SSC Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro tells UEFA.com what UEFA Champions League football means to him and his home-town side who seven years ago were languishing in Italy's third tier.

In 2004 SSC Napoli hit rock bottom. Declared bankrupt, they were relegated to Italy's third division, with the halcyon days of the 1980s, of Diego Maradona and the UEFA Cup, a distant memory.

However, past glories can now set the bar for future success at the Stadio San Paolo because Napoli are back and the UEFA Champions League group stage awaits for the southern Italian team. According to Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro, any nostalgia that has been coursing through Campania this summer has been tinged with excitement. The defender tells UEFA.com what UEFA Champions League football means to him and his home-town club, how much credit goes to coach Walter Mazzarri, and what FC Bayern München, Villarreal CF and Manchester City FC can expect in Group A.
