Napoli: Team news

The game will be the debut of coach Gennaro Gattuso at the helm of the team in the Champions League, who qualified second in Group E with 12 points. David Ospina and Alex Meret dispute the starting position in the goal, while Dries Mertens and Arkadiusz Milik fight for a place in the attack.
8:48 PM9 months ago


Gennaro Gattuso analyzed Messi, Barcelona's main player, and compared with Maradona:

“He's the greatest and he is an example for everyone, he never speaks a word more than the others. He does things that don't exist in the video game, things that are unthinkable. For some years he has been the greatest of all time. But I watched it on videos, and on DVD. Up close, from the stadium, I never saw it. I know the champion I was and I know I missed something wonderful. Am sorry. Today, I see Messi doing things that Maradona did", said.
