Gennaro Gattuso was angry with his Napoli squad for “making too few goals and granting too many” against Milan.
“There’s been serious talk about it for two years and nothing seems to change. I do get frustrated with my players needing six or seven chances to score,” Gattuso to Sky Sport (via).
“As we review the season’s post-COVID phase, we have the chances but are not scoring as consistently as we can. This is clear to see. In the numbers it is called a hot spot, you can see that Milan had so little scoring chances and still they both converted. We are generating so many opportunities, just not finishing off enough. This is where we intend to be stronger.”
“It was my first time to meet Milan, the club that made me a player, a man and it was an emotional moment of course,” he said about facing Milan, with whom they ended in a tie.
He also argued that the current penalty laws are not fit for purpose:
“Don’t ask me about the penalty, I’m not going to answer. You are the judge.
“As for handball, I can’t think of a player jumping or running behind his back, with his arms. It’s another sport. I think we’ve struck a record for handball penalties in Serie A and the rule needs to be changed. Those of us who played the sport know when you jump, you need your arms.”
