Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says he'd like to avoid facing former side Napoli until the Europa League final, after his side powered into the last eight.
Sarri's side thumped Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate after Olivier Giroud's hat-trick inspired Thursday's 5-0 second-leg success in the Ukrainian capital.
The Blues head coach spent three seasons as Napoli manager before replacing fellow Italian Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge last summer, and now he'd like to avoid the Serie A side in Friday's draw.
"I prefer to face them in the final. First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that," said Sarri.
"And second, it means that Naples are in the final, and I am happy. You know very well my relationship with the city, with the people.
"So, for me, it will be very difficult to play against them in Naples."
Sarri fumes at dangerous pitch
Sarri complained of a "really dangerous" pitch in the build up to the match at Kiev's Olympic Stadium, fearing his players may be injured.
UEFA was quick to dismiss his concerns, saying the playing surface did not pose a risk and the issues were mainly cosmetic.
"I was disappointed with the condition of the pitch, but for both teams. Not only for us," he said. "It was not in good condition. It was a problem for us, but also a big problem for Dynamo.
"The pitch is a problem if you want to play a very good match for both teams. We had to play on this pitch, and so we played."
Giroud top Europa League scorer
Giroud now has nine goals in as many appearances in the European competition, while Hudson-Odoi celebrated his first England Under-21 call-up by completing the rout after left-back Alonso made it 3-0 on the night.
Despite France striker Giroud struggling for Premier League action, his manager insists he is a key member of the squad.
"In the last period, every time he has been on the pitch, he was able to play really very well," said Sarri.
"As you know very well, Olivier for us is a very important player. I'm really very happy for him, and am really very happy with him."
