NAPLES – Gattuso 's debut on the Napoli bench started tragically. Napoli conceded goals practically immediately, also losing their strongest defender Kalidou Koulibaly due to injury. In fact, the defender of the Campania company was hurt precisely on the occasion of the guest network.
Koulibaly lost the ball, got hurt and threw Kulusevski into the goal. The Parma footballer did not err in front of the Napoli goalkeeper bringing his team ahead in the score.
So Gattuso had to redesign the team in a hurry and in fury. He had to remove Koulibaly, who came out sore from an injury to his right thigh flexors, replacing him with Luperto. A bad tile for Gattuso as he had prepared the defensive phase of the team with Koulibaly in the field.
Kalidou is the pillar of the Campania team, without him things are much more complicated. A bit like Juventus without Chiellini or Rome without Smalling. However in modern football, where you play every two or three days, these injuries are part of the game and for this reason it is important to have particularly long roses. Sebastiano Luperto is not at the level of Koulibaly but can still prove to be valuable in the marking of a fast player like Gervinho.
