“Two starters absent against Napoli”

The Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italian spoke at a press conference on the eve of the championship match, valid for the third day of Serie A, against Naples. Here are the words of the former Spezia coach on the challenge to the Azzurri:

We face Napoli like last year in the first few days. It is a big one in Italy, now it seems overflowing. He has a coach and top players. It will be a difficult game, we will have to be careful and have a fighting spirit. Like any game, it is a complicated and difficult exam. We will try to propose our football “

Then, on the many samples available to Spalletti and the difficulties of Sunday’s race he added: “A central adapted to full-back to better mark Kvaratskhelia? He has champion quality, though Napoli has many strong players. Osimhen is strong, Lozano is very fast, Anguissa is a phenomenon, Di Lorenzo is strong. We can’t just think of one player. It is the second consecutive year that we meet Napoli in top condition, we must be good at putting them in difficulty. However, we must not distort ourselves, our quality comes out when we have the ball. Faced with phenomena, you too must think as a phenomenon: this is the strategy ”.

The purple coach also announced two absent for the match against Napoli: “We have to start getting used to fatigue and travel. Coming back on Friday and playing on Sunday is difficult, you need quality and a long squad. Tomorrow We won’t have Gonzalez, we won’t have Duncan and we have someone bruised. We all need to be focused and attentive at all times, in every workout. Then I work to make the fans happy, I work to make them proud. There will be difficulties during the year, we must be good at managing them ”.
