ROME, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Napoli head coach Walter Mazzarri warned his side not to be distracted by their rise to the top of Serie A following their 2-0 win over Catania at home on Saturday.

"I cannot change my attitude by looking at the table. Our results come from battles like the one we had today and we must not get distracted. We need to remember every game is a battle," he said.

"We did well not to panic during some moments under pressure today, though we still need to mature in those terms.

"We should've killed it off with a third goal, even if at times the state of the pitch penalises us. If you want to win in modern football, your strikers have to work hard and help out when the opposition has the ball," he added.
