Betting Site: Albiol hopes to link up with Mascherano next season at Napoli

Pay per head sportsbooks saw that there were reports in the Italian press claiming that the Serie A club are holding talks to sign Argentina international Mascherano at the end of this campaign – something that many people with a betting shop would like to see happen.
Napoli coach Rafael Benitez and many betting sites know all about Mascherano’s ability, as he worked with the 29-year-old during the time that he spent as Liverpool’s manager.
Albiol believes that if Benitez can lure him to Stadio San Paolo, the player would be a smart acquisition, and pay per head sportsbooks could not agree more.
“I’d love that, we all know that he is a player of a very high level,” the former Real Madrid defender told Corriere dello Sport.
Price per head services and betting sites saw that last Thursday, Porto dumped Napoli out of the UEFA Europa League, and many people with a betting shop were disappointed to see that on Sunday they fell to a 1-0 loss at home against Fiorentina in Serie A.
At the start of the season, pay per head sportsbooks saw that Benitez’s side were thought to be potential Scudetto contenders, but now betting sites can see that they are third in the table and 20 points adrift of leaders Juventus, something that next season Albiol is eager to correct.
“How far are Napoli from the Scudetto? We have to work hard and think immediately to being able to compete with the best,” he said.
“Unfortunately this year we have gone wrong against small teams. The lesson has been learned and next year we will be more decisive against certain teams.
“The error we must not make is to say that we will be among the best in the next three or four years. Football is based in the present and we are already strong.
“What is lacking in defence? What serves us is the work of the whole team. The problem is not only about those at the back, but the whole XI.
“The Europa League elimination to Porto was borne from the fact that in the first leg we did not score. If we had scored in Portugal, everything would have been different.
