Gattuso makes no excuses for losing

Mon 02 November 2020 | 20:02

Gennaro Gattuso:” We didn’t convert our chances, we could’ve done more, there’s no point talking about a penalty.”

Napoli

faced another home lose against

Sassuolo

after losing the

AZ Alkmaar

match

They didn’t show the required tempo and the boss didn’t deny it

“We had many chances, we didn’t convert them, we could’ve done more and there’s no point standing here talking about whether it was a penalty or not. That’s the way they saw it, we have to focus on the game,” he told

Sky Sport Italia

.

“These incidents can happen, it’s not my job to judge the referee. I judge the team and I say we could’ve done better. Sassuolo are a side that make you run hard and we were too frenetic. We were naïve on their penalty, we should focus first on being solid and getting the goal later.

“We had many chances, Sassuolo are a side that allow you those spaces, but we didn’t have enough quality in our passing. When it was still 0-0, the team gave off the sensation it could score a goal and I don’t recall us being particularly troubled before then.

“If you don’t press Sassuolo well, then

Boga

and

Traore

can cause real problems. Our tempo was too slow when Sassuolo had the ball. We have to keep working, keep improving, finding a way to give

Osimhen

better service.”

“We mustn’t listen to people talking about the Scudetto. We’ll try to get into the top four. It’s a very strong league this season, every team is smart, they change their shape, and it is really difficult to find a way through.

“I see my Napoli team. We’re not as sharp as we were before, but with a game every two-three days, that’s only to be expected.”
