"I've been with Napoli for 4 years. We're doing well this season, we want to do even better both in the league and in the Champions League. We can and want to give our fans the joy of the Scudetto. I also have big goals for the national team: I hope to play the World Cup and the European Championships with my country".
This was stated by Napoli midfielder Eljif Elmas in an interview with the Turkish portal DHA from Antalya, where the blue club is in retreat in preparation for the restart of Serie A.
The Macedonian played for Fenerbahce before joining Napoli in 2019 and spoke about the two clubs in his career: "I hope Fenerbahce - he said - become champions in Turkey this season. It would be fantastic to see both Fenerbahce and Napoli champions We've had a lot of fun in Naples so far. We've put on a show, playing good matches in the Champions League as well. In Serie A we've won 13 games and got 2 draws. It's going great right now, but we have to look ahead and not stop.
We want to continue our journey in the Champions League as well.
We have big goals."
Elmas also describes how the blue group appreciates Antalya: "I have often come to Antalya in the past with my family.
For my companions, however, it is the first time.
The hotel is fantastic and the facilities are of a high standard.
All the players are positively surprised, for me it's normal, but my team-mates didn't know Turkey and we're training well."
