Napoli boss

Gennaro Gattuso

has criticized Granada’s strategy in a post-match interview with

Sky Sport Italia

.

“We conceded an absurd goal today, it was three against one in the box. I can’t remember any other chances for Granada. We have to be proud of what we showed,"

Gattuso said.

“Those who represent us need to make themselves respected a bit more – if an Italian team played like Granada tonight, they would get slaughtered in all the papers. There needs to be respect, today they wasted too much time, three minutes at every opportunity.

“I’m angry not because we lost, but because there was very little play.

“Right now we need to get the players and the enthusiasm back.

"The players need to be calm, it’s me that people should be bothering here.

"I’m the one who’s most responsible. Now, we have to get to work, it’ll be important for us. The Napoli shirt is a heavy weight, but we need to be calm and give that little bit extra.”
