The coach satisfied after the friendly: “Very good game, but that injury …”. And he sends a message to De Laurentiis: “We need a squad that holds its own against all competitions”
– Dimaro (Trento)
Luciano Spalletti at the end of the match is still upset about the injury to Demme, but his opinion on the friendly match with Pro Vercelli is serene: “We played a very good game, the players were careful about what we had to develop, we taken by escaping as a team, in my opinion the guys have also made good plots, creating important situations.The fact that there are many tired players is missing is to avoid taking risks, we went our way with work, we did not rest yesterday or the day before yesterday. I’m happy with the behavior “. Then on Demme. “The only negative note. It bothers us, it bugs us, he has taken this blow, we must be cautious and wait for further information, looking carefully. Because he is in pain, but we have faith”.
Cuddles for Victor
Spalletti’s eyes light up when he talks about Osimhen: “He also goes alone, in the open field, he is everywhere, being always available for every action is an important characteristic. This sometimes makes him lose quality and leads him to commit some mistake, but he is a complete, important player. We bet on him. ”
The coach expands the concept of chaining oneself for Koulibaly: “I chained myself for everyone, I like this team here, if it remains like this I’m the happiest in Napoli. other. I would like Koulibaly to always be with me, both as a player and as a man. I have never coached someone as strong as him. “
Speaking of absent
Fabian Ruiz, Mertens and Lozano: what is their best location. “The Spaniard can play on both sides, we want a team that dribbles, then it also depends on the opponents, if they throw themselves into the construction and if you have to put the men in the interspaces, so we talk about 4-2-3- 1. In front of the defense then it is clear you don’t need a porter, but one who makes it travel. Lobotka has adapted well, as a midfielder, then later as a low playmaker without Demme. I see a continuous growth, it is a confirmation of the idea that I had made myself. Mertens central striker or under striker, where he has always played, he is good there, in tight spaces to get out, then it depends on the game, on what development he has. One like Dries always finds a place. Lozano prefers to play at on the right, on the other hand it is clear that he can enter but he also scored many goals from the right, change too much then he makes a soup. But with those characteristics he can play from all sides “.
The value of the group
Then he exalts the group: “The human qualities are so many. They are friends off the pitch, they always help each other, they are also convinced that they are strong after I had questioned this. There is something to improve, but they go full steam to Napoli. This is a shirt that we must learn to wear even when there is no match, Napoli wants this from Napoli. ”
Message for ADL
On the talks held in recent days with Aurelio De Laurentiis: “Our president is attentive to everything, he needs to fix situations, but he must remain a strong team because there are so many: seven of our level and then someone always comes outside and becomes the pain in the ass. We need a squad that will take a hit on all competitions, then the African Cup will take away Osimhen and Koulibaly for 6-7 games and we want to finish in the top four, we don’t hide! “.
