NAPOLI SPALLETTI – Napoli have finished this morning, in view of the match scheduled for tonight, against Rangers for the second day of the Champions League.
Napoli, Spalletti: “Kvara and Lobotka are very good”
Napoli returned to training in Scotland, in view of tonight’s match against Rangers, at 21:00. Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti spoke about tomorrow’s match, complimenting his players Lobotka and Kvaratskhelia. Here are the words of the blue coach:
On the express game:
“If we can we like to play football, move the ball. There is Lobotka who is very good at getting out of the cramped pressures in the middle of traffic. Kvaratskhelia has great technique, quality and is very good at kicking towards goal. In these matches and in the league you need the defensive phase and when you get too many compliments, then the players forget to be totally available even in their attitudes ”.
“Having an extra day allows you to start thinking about the formation a little bit in advance, when you play so closely you can have a little more time ”.
On the attackers, and the lack of Osimhen:
“Raspadori is very good at moving, he did more than a few midfielders in the match against Spezia. He did what I expected, maybe tomorrow we will need other features here, it is normal to have other thoughts as well. You don’t lose anything with that or that, with Giovanni you are more able to attack the depth because that’s what he does as a profession, he really likes to see what’s going on. He is a strong player precisely because of this kind of enthusiasm, when there are those players there it is normal for us to take that step forward to become champions. He came in two or three times from the bench he said to me, don’t tell me, let me play, to have even thirty seconds more on the pitch. This makes everything easier. Without Osimhen? Any team now gets caught on the edge of the area, sometimes the ball on the first striker is useful and having him physically helps. With Spezia we wanted to keep them in their half, waiting for the right moment, tomorrow night I need a little different things. We’ll try to choose well, both Simeone and Raspadori, however, know how to play with the ball on their feet, the former is better at attacking spaces ”.
