Spalletti: “Tomorrow There Are Many Risks, They Have Good Players”

With Napoli set to face Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium tomorrow evening, Spalletti previewed the highly anticipated fixture in the press conference.

“Tomorrow there are many risks, they have good players who determine an excellent team, it will take the awareness of being strong even if we leave Anfield with this certainty. What we always say, quality and physical strength will be needed, they are created in a way correct and then there is Gasp who is a veteran of the terrible ones.”

In addition, he gave his perspective on what his squad will have to execute in order to avoid a large amount of difficulties:

“There is not just one thing, the field is so big that the solutions are always multiple. We will have to do everything, interpret the changes in the same match, and we have seen that the team knows how to play openly and how to behave in various situations. “
