Napoli defender Raul Albiol has stressed the importance of the side fighting until the end to win this season's Serie A title.

Albiol swapped Real Madrid for Napoli this summer as the Italian outfit went on a spending spree, partly financed by the €64.5m sale of Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain.


Napoli have enjoyed a strong start to the season and sit third in Serie A, six points off league leaders Juventus.

And Albiol has explained just how important it is that Napoli continue to fight for the title.


"It’s a team who have gone a long time since winning the league and that is why, for us, winning the Scudetto is a very important challenge", Albiol explained to FIFA.

"Juve have dominated the championship in the last few seasons, but we hope to compete until the very end."

Napoli are next in action in Serie A on Monday night, when they make the trip to the Italian capital to play Lazio.
