Gennaro Gattuso wants to see the mentality in which his team has emerged Naples Sunday night in front of Roma permanently, as Bartinope beat the Gilarossi by four without a response, in the Italian League competitions.
“We must play with this strength in every match, with this atmosphere on the team bus, in the dressing room, throughout the match,” Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia.
He added: “What I liked was the situation today, when there was a mistake on the part of one of the players in the team, they helped each other and clapped for them instead of telling them to go (smut) themselves, this is what I like to see.”
And Gattuso added: “Maybe this is my fault, because in order not to pressure the players, I let things go easily. Now I realize that I cannot let anything pass. Times have changed.”
He continued: “We know that with the list of matches crowded, we cannot always provide 100% performance in every match, but this is the reason why the mentality is important, because it can allow you to overcome difficulties and keep raising the level.”
“I see mentality as the problem here,” explained the Napoli coach. “We need to find the balance to play good football, but as a team.”
On the Naples tribute to the late Argentine football legend Diego Maradona, Gattuso commented: “There is a feeling of sadness, but at this moment I think that the city must also show common sense, I see many people walking around without masks (in light of the outbreak of the Corona epidemic).”
And he continued: “Maradona is a legend, and everyone knows that, and I understand the desire to express this affection, but I hope that tomorrow the city will return to being sane, or we will all pay the consequences later.”
This victory allows Napoli to climb to 17 points, one point behind Inter and Sassuolo, but Gattuso pointed to the point that was deducted from them due to their absence from the Juventus match, in light of Elmas and Zelensky’s injury to Corona.
“For me, we have 18 points, we got 18 points, we were on the team bus at the airport when the call came, but at that moment I felt that we could really get a result in Turin, trust me, the situation did not help us in any way, we hope it will happen,” Gattuso said. Justice”.
This decision awaits another appeal, with Napoli keen to repeat the match and play against Juventus.
“From my point of view, Inter Milan is the team that must be overcome, they combine quality and physical strength, and they have many options available and they are favorites in the competition, and then there is Juventus, who are accustomed to the top,” Gattuso said.
