Napoli boss thinks that they had a hard clash despite the 4-0 victory.



Luciano Spalletti

has talked about his side’s performance after their 4-0 victory over


in Serie A, insisting that they had a rough night despite the good result.

Spalletti’s men managed to gain their fifth victory in the fifth league match with a remarkable performance from their star

Victor Osimhen

who scored two goals in his side’s 4-0 win.

“We are happy with Osimhen because he works so hard in everything he does,”

Spalletti told DAZN


“It was a good result today, but Sampdoria caused us problems in the first half. Where we deserve credit is for hanging in there, resisting the pressure and then finishing our chances well.

“Ospina did really well in goal during the first half, as Sampdoria pounced on us from the start, but that left huge gaps behind their defense, and in those situations Osimhen is devastating.

“When the game isn’t going well, you have to try to get something from the individuals and that’s what we did.”

Other than Osimhen, the coach and the fans were also happy with

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa’s

performance, which has added everything that Napoli needed last season.

“We lack strength and the tackle in other players, whereas he has these characteristics. That’s not all, as he can also pass the ball and create play, but more than anything he realised where the team is lacking and focuses his energy on covering those gaps to help out.

“We added a trequartista for the second half, because they were forcing our midfielders too deep, so Fabian couldn’t put the pressure on.”

Spalletti has also claimed that the fans should understand that Napoli has its limits as he acknowledges the fact that they have raised the expectations with five victories in five games.

“We are just a football team, we enjoy the extraordinary affection that this city has towards the club colors. We must keep working calmly, because the average for a Champions League place is 80-85 points, which means we are missing 72 points.

“Looking at it from that perspective, there’s a long way to go and many other teams can get back into it.”
