Napoli and Spalletti: “We must be good at keeping results”

At the press conference, the Azzurri coach gave a big match against AC Milan

It is as if Napoli reflected in Milan. Luciano Spalletti sees many similarities: “Two teams are doing well and have healthy intentions. It is difficult to say who will be better. Who will know how to take a small advantage on the field, expecting the opponent. Those who will handle the ball better. You have to be careful not to Losing balls. They are not those who think a lot about possession: if they find space to attack without delay. Those moments will be decisive for both of us. I am very confident, and I see that the team is very convinced. Even if we have a very strong team ahead of us with a coach, I respect a lot. As a man and a colleague.”

Forward central dilemma

There’s no Osimhen but the coach doesn’t dispel doubt about who will replace him: “Simeone attacks more spaces in depth, he’s more physical. Raspadori is different, more slippery, the goal in Scotland says a lot: You find yourself building and then you finish it and it gets hard to spot. We took them different to get On all characteristics. Here, also about infidels. We are not addicted to Osimhen. Also from Georgian. If we depend on one when he does not play how do you do it? We will need everyone because the tournament is very long and difficult. The important thing is to protect the group. It is not true that my players My team knows the lineup today. Because I need more than 11 players to try to win it.”

At the moment we are satisfied.”

They also knew how to renew by bringing in some samples. They managed to do everything and they should be congratulated. It will be a good match.
