Meret, Gragnaniello: “It doesn’t drive Spalletti crazy”
Spalletti talked about the future of the role of the goalkeeper: according to him, the range of action of the goalkeeper will move even further, even on the bezel of the penalty area. Do you agree?
“Given the speed of thought and action, the tactical exasperation and the development of physical skills in my opinion will be the opposite and the goalkeeper will be forced to play with his feet more and more but even lower, thus raising the level of risk and of error as is already happening to see in some games “.
Do you think his words take Meret away from Naples?
“Regardless of what the future of the goalkeeper will be in general, in my opinion Meret does not drive the coach crazy”.
In the same interview he stated that arriving in the top four next season will be very difficult: which of the teams that came after fourth this season could be strengthened to the point of taking the Champions League area?
“That Napoli set the top 4 positions as the maximum limit depends on themselves more than on the opponents: the history of the last few seasons has told us this. Personally, I think it will be interesting to observe the growth of the Roman women ”.
