Nerves on the skin in the Napoli-Lazio final. Gattuso lashed out against a Lazio bench member who would have called him a terrone.
At the end of the match, the Napoli coach provided the following explanation to Sky Sport's microphones.
“It was a real game. In all senses. In Italy there are no more fake games, they all play with the knife between their teeth.
What happened? I deserved the expulsion. I felt something I didn't like and I reacted badly in my turn. I shouldn't have done that, so I tell you I deserved the expulsion.
But these are things that happen in football, nothing in particular. Now our head is only in Barcelona. We will look for the company ”.
After Gattuso, Inzaghi also spoke of the great nervousness that was seen at the San Paolo between the players of Napoli and Lazio in the final minutes.
And he immediately softened the tones:
“We didn't want to finish fourth, we knew Atalanta was losing and we wanted to finish third, there was a bit of nervousness. With Gattuso there is no problem, even if we haven't met yet.
These things happen. In these days we have seen many exchanges of views.
There had been something between one of his collaborators and one of my collaborators, but they are things that are resolved at the end of the game. These are scenes that should not be seen but on the pitch it happens, it happened to me other times ”.
In the post-match of Napoli-Lazio the biancocelesti coach Simone Inzaghi, from the microphones of Sky Sport, talks about the great nervousness, with a hint of brawl on the field, seen at San Paolo between the players of Napoli and Lazio in the final minutes of the game.
"We close the championship in fourth place and we certainly could have done better as we were placed before the break – says Inzaghi -. But nothing detracts from the championship that we played.
But nothing detracts from the boys' championship. We left behind Napoli, Milan and Roma, very equipped opponents. We have been together for 4 years, we must improve where we can. We will have to try to make an excellent path in the Champions League and start in the right way. "
What is the biggest regret for Inzaghi?
"I think in the week of Bergamo I went there without 6-7 players, of which 5 owners – he replies –
It is normal that some problems could be affected, I found myself without several important players. The regret is not having been able to play like the others after the break ”. (ANSA source, YouTube video).
