Sarri eyes Manchester United after Napoli reach Champions League groups

Share

Lorenzo Insigne netted his 50th goal for Napoli on Tuesday as the in-demand forward helped his team book a place in the Champions League group stage by beating Nice.

Balotelli had been off the pitch arguing with the fourth official, leaving Nice with 10 men early in the second half, when the unmarked Callejon tapped in at the far post to put Napoli in front.

Nice were temporarily down to 10 men at the time, with Mario Balotelli over by the touchline receiving attention, but neither he nor fellow Champions League victor Wesley Sneijder could inspire Nice, who must content themselves with a place in the Europa League.

On Monday, Frazier of Merck, Kevin Plank of Under Armour and Krzanich of Intel stepped down from the manufacturing council. He had earlier said that he had "done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils".

'I'd love to play against Manchester United at Old Trafford, ' said Sarri, when asked which opponent he'd like to face in the draw.

Balotelli, who missed the first leg through injury, was sluggish, off the pace and never threatened the Napoli goal and the maverick Italian was eventually substituted during the second half to jeers from the home fans.

That ensured the Greek side a 3-1 aggregate win and a return to the Champions League after they fell at this stage last season.

Marko Marin scored the only goal in Croatia as Olympiacos secured a 3-1 aggregate win over Rijeka and Mitja Viler's strike proved enough for Maribor to defeat Hapoel Be'er Sheva 1-0 and qualify on away goals following a 2-1 loss last week.

He added: "The Europa League is the right level for Nice and it'll be a hard tournament". These lads deserved the Champions League, though.
