Mazzarri to give Vargas time

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri will give new Chilean forward Eduardo Vargas time to bed down. Vargas joined the Italians from Universidad de Chile this month following a stunning 2011 in his homeland.

He scored twice in the final as Universidad won the Copa Sudamericana for the first time while his goals helped them to victories in both the Chilean apertura and clausura championships. But Mazzarri doesn't want to rush him in Naples, although he has included him in the squad for Sunday's trip to Palermo.

"I've spoken little with Vargas, (Hugo) Campagnaro has been translating for me," said Marrazzi. "He seems a bright lad, yesterday he watched our tactical session to accelerate his adaptation process. Sunday, we'll take him with us to get him used to the atmosphere as soon as possible.

"He's a young lad and football is different in Chile. We can't wait to see him but I know the atmosphere here and I don't want him to feel too much expectation."
