Luciano Spalletti he enjoys his Naples and takes some pebbles off his shoes after the success against Atalanta. The coach and his boys had been the target of some criticism after the home defeat against Lazio, the second in the league and the third this season.
The blue coach to the microphones of DAZN: “We had fun during the week because, after 20 games we didn’t lose, the first game we lost, how they pounced on their prey is incredible stuff.”
At the end of the match won against the Dea, Spalletti declared: “Kvaratskhelia has an important one-on-one quality. If you turn your back on him, then you’re ‘dead’. The quality of finishing is a lot of stuff. They are games of the highest level. Atalanta played very well, they created difficulties for us in the duels. Scoring goals and winning this game is very important for the team, we came off a defeat. We reacted like a great team. The players deserve it, they played a great game.”
Spalletti praises Sarri before the match against Lazio: “A Masaniello, I loved his Napoli”
Particular praise for Kim’s game and its great potential: “He does twenty incredible things in one game, for me he’s really the strongest centre-back in the world. When he starts with the ball and decides to go ball and chain, he carries the ball into the opponent’s box in 5″. He’s fine, I told him not to invent anything because tomorrow morning he trains (laughs, ed)”.
Finally, the Napoli coach concluded by talking about the team’s game and the way in which its players allow this type of football to be played: “When you decide to accept Napoli, you get to know the history and the feeling that people have for this team. With an audience like this it’s clear that you have to be daring a little, you need to have some imagination of where you want to go. Here they are not satisfied to finish third, you have to win. Reattacks when we lose the ball are the fundamental thing to involve the stadium in a special atmosphere. We don’t like to stoop, we are all convinced that we play offensive and modern football, to keep the ball even if they press us. When you have people like Anguissa (returned to high levels), Lobotka, Di Lorenzo, everything becomes easier. We all want ‘that’, we’ll do anything, but in between there are games that you have to play and where you have strength of character.”
