Gattuso, the manager side Napoli, described the team’s tactics in a characteristic manner, saying that sometimes he is forced to play an ugly style of football in order to get results.
Napoli is currently 6th in Seria A. Even more important for the Gli Azzuri, the squad has been playing attractive football across previous weeks. The side’s objective is to finish among the top four of the Italian first tier. This would grant them access to the Champions League competition.
However, Gennaro Gattuso says that fans should not always expect his side to play free-flowing, offensive football. Napoli won their game against Udinese in the dying stages of the match. The goal was scored through a header by Tiémoué Bakayoko.
Gattuso acknowledges that this was not team’s best performance. Still, he is unapologetic.
According to Marca, the manager described the match in his characteristic way.
You don’t always have to be like Brad Pitt. Sometimes you have to be like Calimero, a little ugly and dirty.
Calimero is known as a character in animated movies. He is depicted as the Ugly Duckling.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, Napoli will take on Fiorentina at home at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
