Courage, intelligence and heart." (REPORTER ASKS IF ANCELOTTI HAS SEEN THESE QUALITIES GROW IN THE TEAM LATELY) "I have seen only a little courage in the first game (against Arsenal), particularly in the early stages.

I saw intelligence, if I look at that game, particularly in the second half, when we played an intelligent game, a bit risky, but we did what we had to do.

The heart is what we will put in tomorrow next to a large dose of intensity.'' STORY: Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti demanded "courage, intelligence and heart" from his team on Wednesday (April 17), a day before they attempt to overturn a two-goal deficit against Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-finals.

Bidding to win their first European trophy since a Diego Maradona-inspired side won the old UEFA Cup in 1989, Napoli host the English Premier League side on Thursday (April 18) in the second leg of their tie, trailing 2-0 from last week's first match.

"In three words, we need courage, intelligence and heart," Ancelotti said, speaking at a news conference in Naples.
