The Tuscan coach also extolled the leadership of Victor Osimhen

Reduced by the disappointing performance at the San Siro, and with Juve’s breath beginning to be heard behind them, Napoli was called upon to react quickly in order to thwart their opponents’ comeback attempts. Mission accomplished in that of Marassi, in an environment that was, to say the least, shaken and emotional in the memory of Sinisa Mihajlovic and Gianluca Vialli.

Speaking to DAZN microphones in the post-match, Luciano Spalletti was satisfied, but aware of the pitfalls that await his team. As early as next Friday, when Max Allegri’s highly-launched Juve will arrive at the ‘Maradona’.

“I saw a very mature team, a team that was able to reason in a match that for too many reasons could have become complicated. They put their head in it, we never questioned it,” he began. “Osimhen has a way of being on the field thanks to which he goes out and takes all the responsibility: these are the characteristics you need in a game. And he uses them all. Lately he has more attention in what should be the movements to do with the whole team, he is a strong footballer. There are many leaders who are more taciturn but in practice they have that stuff there,” he added.

About the super challenge with the Bianconeri, scheduled in a few days, Spalletti was explicit: “Juventus is the most difficult team to face, like Inter and Milan. They are one of the strongest teams in the league in terms of players, coaches and corporate strength, regardless of the fact that they come from eight consecutive wins,” he concluded.
