The words of Francesco Calzona after Sassuolo-Napoli

The replay of the 21st day of Serie A ended in a goleada for Napoli, which after going into a disadvantage with Sassuolo è managed to come back and run rampant triumphing 1-6. In the post-match, the coach of the partenopei Francesco Calzona bluntly analyzed the performance of his boys, with a special eye on Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, authentic protagonists of the azure success.

"This team has it in its soul to be proactive and I am happy because the boys gave me a great availability during the week and despite a thousand difficulties, they made themselves available and we improved the quality of training. They understood that we have to try to make a run-up and today I am delighted with the response they gave, becauseè after the 1-0 we could have succumbed mentally and it did not è happen, this gives me hope for the future" began the coach of the partenopei at the microphones of "DAZN".

"Victor is returning to his levels. Before, he did not have a great condition because é the Africa Cup of Nations è hard for footballers. Now è he is back, and slowly he is regaining his best form. The same goes for Kvara, who went through a difficult time, but today he showed the footballer he è. These are two guys who, despite the difficulties, did not make any kind of controversy and worked their heads off. I am not so crazy as to deprive myself of these players, but if in the match I notice a drop in intensity; then è it is right to change them with someone who has given me so much during the week" continued the Slovakia coach on the Georgian and the Nigerian.

"We worked on the two phases clearly. I asked them to have order, not to be in a hurry, not to be disjointed becauseé the defensive phase cannot be done by fantasy but must be done by organization. We have also worked on the offensive phase but I always tell the boys that having above-average quality I want them to put their best foot forward, I do not want to cage them in the last 30 meters, and we have the qualities to do what we did tonight" added the coach of the Champions of Italy.

"We have to think game by game. We have a very difficult schedule ahead of us, but Napoli è an important team. The boys are aware of this. I am happy with the way they are dealing with it. Let’s try to win as much as possible and then we’ll see where we can get to at the end of the season" commented Francesco Calzona about the continuation of the championship.
