Gennaro Gattuso has so far proved a success with Napoli, and with the Azzurri taking a slightly different approach to appointing managers, could it mean that the ex-Milan hero could be one of the next-in-line for Italy’s top management job? His career has seen him climb the Serie A, and if that trajectory continued he could yet find himself as Italy’s boss one day.
The Coppa Italia final wasn’t the one for ages – after a dire 90 minutes of football, only the penalties separated the two sides. However, Juventus’ sterile performance caught the eyes of many, and we’ll dive into some of the tactical nuances of the match, explaining how Gennaro Gattuso was able to shut down Maurizio Sarri’s star-studded side.
Napoli won the Coppa Italia 2020 beating Juventus on penalties after a nil-nil draw. The Partenopei won the penalty lottery scoring from all their four attempts, while Juventus missed their first two shots. The first post-COVID 19 Italian trophy is all for Gennaro Gattuso, who inherited a team on the verge of a breakdown and managed to put their pieces back together.
After a valiant performance at Anfield where Ancelotti’s men held on for a hard earned point, Napoli secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League in emphatic style at home to Genk. Hours later Carlo Ancelotti was out of a job, his dismissal immediately overshadowed by President Aurelio De Laurentiis’ swift appointment of Gennaro Gattuso.
Emergency operators at the Antonio Cardarelli hospital in Napoli must have recorded a sudden increase in heart attack cases last night, on the wave of the Partenopei’s umpteenth come-from-behind win in Serie A Round 2. Carlo Ancelotti’s side went down 0-2 to a solid Milan trained by Ringhio Gattuso, before reaching heaven with a 3-2 comeback.
Winning at home, in Europe, and in the world, and collect all sort of star players. That was the credo of Silvio Berlusconi’s Milan since 1986 to 2012. However, the Rossoneri have been through quite a few troubled seasons recently, passing in the hands of a somewhat mysterious Chinese management before being taken over by U.S. investment fund Elliot.

The good news for Milan and Gennaro Gattuso is that they will never have to face Benevento again. The spell cast by Roberto De Zerbi’s Witches over the Rossoneri in the first leg continued to have effect, as the Giallorossi earned a stunning 0-1 win in San Siro last night, thanks to a lone goal by Pietro Iemmello. Benevento continued to fight against mathematics, and pushed relegation a few more hours away.
