Gattuso on Napoli: You can’t be Brad Pitt all the time
Napoli head coach Gennaro Gattuso commented on the team’s victory over Udinese in the match of the 17th round of the Italian championship pin up (2:1).
The decisive goal was scored by the Neapolitans in stoppage time for the second half – the ball was scored by Tiemoue Bakayoko.
“It was a tough game. Everyone in the team is aware that you should always play with full dedication. The defeat against Spezia in the last round was a blow for us. Showing such a game against an opponent of the level of Udinese is very cool.
In football, the emotional component is important, we did not prove ourselves in the game with Spezia. Beautiful football is, of course, good, but in some matches we lack anger. However, you can’t always be Brad Pitt. Sometimes you need to see the ugly duckling in the mirror in order not to relax,” Sky Sport Italia quoted Gattuso as saying.
Recall that after 17 rounds Napoli is fifth in the Serie A standings with 31 points.
Previously, Gattuso spoke about a serious illness that has been suffering for 10 years.
