Napoli boss is happy with his players’ performance in their 6-0 victory.


says that people should give


players credit for their performance against Fiorentina.

“It looked like an easy game, but it was not easy. [David] Ospina made a great save when we were one goal up,”

Gattuso told DAZN


“The turning point was [Lorenzo] Insigne’s assist, they lost some wickedness after that. We turned every opportunity into a goal.  We conceded some goal chances, but it was a great performance. We’ll need another one like this on Wednesday.

“It’s not easy to remain focused when you win 4-0 at half time. That’s why I raised my voice in the second half. We made so many mistakes in home games this season, we’ve reached Roma in the table, we cared so much about this game.”

And about Diego Demme he added:

“He is an important player, last season he helped us so much when he arrived.

“We’ve scored 50 goals in 23 games, a lot. Of course sometimes we may lack balance, there are choices that must be done.

“I am happy I have players like Demme, Fabian Ruiz, [Piotr] Zielinksi, [Tiemoue] Bakayoko, players who have quality, but the balance provided by Diego [Demme] can’t be given by other players right now. The others have quality, they can give me other solutions,

“Zielinski can play in any role, he has so much quality, when he is fit, he can cover a big part of the pitch, if you put him close to the goal, he can be dangerous. He is a complete player who has room for improvement in terms of mentality.”
