I am satisfied with the way the team interpreted the game. I saw mentality, strength and sacrifice. Despite the great result, we took a chance and put Fiorentina back in the game a couple of times”, Said the strategist after the game in Naples. “We come from three positive results between the championship and the cup but we know that we still have points on the way. This should give us the push to recover”.

Today we did something different, I saw a great order. Maybe we could have done better with Lozano on the outside, we broke the line of the sides, but that was the only thing I did not like. It is true that we created but with Udinese and Empoli I did not like them from the defensive point of view“Added the strategist.

The southern team, rival of Granada in the round of 32 of the Europa League, momentarily reached third league position, six points away from leader Milan, who will play this Monday in the Cagliari field.
