Napoli Will 'Buy Helmets And Armour' For Camp Nou Visit - Gennaro Gattuso
Gennaro Gattuso is aware of just how big a challenge it will be to overtake Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
Napoli scored early in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie only to face an equalizer from Antoine Griezmann later on.
A toothless Barca side went home with the away goal advantage but Gattuso is not ready to give up. “Nothing is over for us when we’re playing the last 16 in the Champions League, not even when we play cards,” the Napoli head coach told a news conference.
“We know the difficulties we are going through. We will buy helmets and armour. We will get all the necessary [tools] and will play the next game. Nothing is over.”
“I am disappointed because we made kind of a mistake defensively and they hit us. For sure we could do better,” he added. “When Lorenzo Insigne had his chance [Arkadiusz] Milik and [Piotr] Zielinski were not marked. Perhaps we could have exploited that situation in a better way. Same applies for [Jose] Callejon.
“There is some disappointment, we suffered but the team did almost everything right from a tactical point of view. I am happy for this, perhaps we could have done better passing. This is the only regret.”
