faced each other in Week 17 of Serie A and Napoli managed to defeat the opponent with two goals.

In a post-match interview, The Blues’ boss,

Gennaro Gattuso

has talked about the game and his team’s performance.

“On Wednesday we lost an incredible game with Spezia, so it was tough here to get back on track, but I am glad that we took back what we dropped three days ago.

“I don’t get angry with my players for their technique, it’s when they don’t smell fear. I think we are a team who repeatedly don’t spot the danger when it’s coming.

“We have to improve in when we’re under pressure, because I know I don’t have a side that can soak up pressure for ages, that’s not our approach, but we can do better than we are now. You can’t tell me that mentality cannot be improved or coached. I don’t believe it.

“What happened with Spezia infuriated me, because the ball came off the post, we had five players ball-watching while Tommaso Pobega reacted quicker. That is a lack of determination that is unacceptable.

“Napoli want to always be beautiful, but sometimes being a bit ugly is a good thing. You can’t always be Brad Pitt, with blonde hair and blue eyes. Sometimes you have to be a bit ugly, like me. I look worse than usual now, as I’m all puffed up due to the cortisone shots, but I feel better…”
