Coach Walter Novellino praised Kim Min-jae for his impressive performance at Napoli this season.
Italian media ‘TutomercatoWeb’ reported an interview with former Napoli coach Walter Novellino, which was conducted on its own radio program ‘Piazza Apari’ on the 3rd (Korean time).
Novellino was the manager of Napoli in the 1999/00 season.
He promoted Napoli, who had been relegated to Serie B through a dark period after the era of Diego Maradona, to Serie A, but he was sacked after one season and had to leave Napoli. After that, he went through Sampdoria and Torino and held the managerial position of major Serie A teams. 바카라사이트
Regarding Napoli’s rise this season, coach Novellino said, “Napoli’s secret is the quality of players, and another strength that has made this possible is new recruitment.”
In fact, Napoli are delivering results this season based on the performance of their newly acquired players and the growing skill of their existing resources.
Napoli’s main defender Kalidou Coulibaly moved to Chelsea, and Dris Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne, who were the core of the attack, and main midfielder Fabian Ruiz all left the team, leaving the team until just before the opening. .
However, Kim Min-jae and Hvitza Kvarachhelia, who newly joined the team, have established themselves as key players in the offense and defense, respectively, at the same time as they were recruited.
Existing key players such as Victor Osimen, Piotr Zielinski and Giovanni Di Lorenzo also showed off their outstanding abilities and were reborn as a team with the best quality in both offense and defense.
Director Novellino said, “Kim Min-jae and Kvarazhelia really left a deep impression on me. General manager Cristiano Giuntoli has brought in players who fit perfectly into coach Luciano Spalletti’s formation,” he said, praising the performance of the newly recruited players and Napoli’s eye for player recruitment.
“Napoli recovered better after letting go of the big players. It has also improved financially. And more importantly, they are a team. For example, Milan doesn’t seem to be like that anymore,” he said, emphasizing Napoli’s transfer skills and stickiness.
Napoli, praised by coach Novellino, is at the top of the league with 53 points this season, and the gap with Inter Milan, second in the league, is not small at 13 points.
If the players continue to play well until the end of the season, the first scudetto (win) since the dark days of the 2000s is expected to be possible.
