It’s a Luca Gotti embittered what appears in the press room of the “Maradona” stadium, after the last-minute knockout of Spezia against Napoli. But for the coach of the Eagles there is much to save after a match played point by point against the Campania region, fresh from a 4-1 at Liverpool and now at the top of the standings: “The almost perfect match does not exist, especially in the first half. ‘now we have made too many mistakes, giving too much continuity to Napoli. In the second half we improved and we held the field in a remarkable way. We could have made better use of a couple of situations, but it must be said that the great quality of the opposing team takes you so hard in the defensive phase and you can lose your clarity “, explains the former Udinese coach immediately after the match, then focusing on an episode immediately. following the goal of Napoli, which led to the expulsion of Luciano Spalletti and that of the eagle trainer Fabrizio Lorieri: “In the final there was this turmoil, with insignificant details. The fourth official gave six minutes of recovery, Napoli scores in the ninetieth, three minutes and ten pass before resuming the game but then the minutes have become five, and it was difficult to understand. In itself it has a null value, but at that moment you conceded a goal there and you feel ridiculed by someone and it is clear that it is hard not to lose your temper ”.
But as mentioned, for Spezia there is still a good performance on the pitch of one of the big names in the league, after those already played against Juventus and Inter. But for Gotti there is not a single single to be awarded: “In some cases I would have had no problem answering if I had thought that someone deserved more. Several of our people did a level competition. Maybe some of them did it better at some point, others less, but many of my players deserve a big pass ”. Still zero away goals? Against opponents of this level it is difficult: “We have played three away games, with Inter, Juventus and Napoli. The next will be Lazio. I think that these analyzes, which I can also do by looking at the numbers, need to wait for a slightly deeper horizon ”. In closing eyes already projected to the future, when Marco Giampaolo’s Sampdoria will arrive at the Picco in seven days. A direct confrontation, even if it is still early to talk about it: “I’m sitting talking about the game that has just ended. I realize the importance of the next match, because we are the two Ligurians in Serie A. The ranking says that it is probably a direct match, but in the seventh game it is difficult to talk about decisive and decisive things ”, concludes Gotti.
