    BREAKING NEWS:

    Gennaro Gattuso has been sacked as Napoli manager after missing out on the Champions League.

    The chances of our boy Victor being victorious next season hangs in the balance. E DON RED!

    Napoli has scrappy and selfish forwards… You could see Victor Osimhen lamenting for passes all through the game… the short man Insigne and the other forward were all looking as usual to score themselves… rather than square Osimhen. I don’t know why Gattuso did nothing and let the forwards continue that negative play all season.

    Yes Gattuso deserved to be blamed for Napoli pattern of play. My judgement isn’t based on today’s result only but on how they played throughout the season. I bet any striker will struggle to have meaningful impact with the kind of football Napoli play. All their midfielders and wingers do is dance around with the ball, pass to the back or sideways, no squareplay, no deadly balls played into the box for Osimhen to benefit from, rather than pass they shoot unnecessarily. As a matter of fact. If we check the stat. Napoli midfielders and Wingers go for shot almost 9 out of 10 chances which would have been better utilized if they pass to Osimhen because he is a deadly finisher. Any sensible coach should have notice this and make amendments but he did nothing. Lastly, Insigne, Politano, Lozano, Zielinski & Fabian Ruiz played a huge role towards their defeat today alongside the yeye defender who couldn’t close the guy that score the equalizer

      Honestly, after their goal, Napoli had Verona where they needed them to be. All they just needed to do was to manage the game properly, knowing that they were already one leg and a half in 3rd place. Seat deep, absorb pressure and let Osimhen be their Yekini whom they will just keep launching balls into space for to chase. I bet nobody on that pitch had osimhen’s pace. How they managed to fall to a counter attack with such a high defensive line whilst 1-0 up is something Im struggling to phantom. Its so painful but I dont pity Gattusso 1 bit. I just hope the next coach has seen the potentials in Victor and make him the focal point of the team’s attack.

    I totally expect Napoli to close shop after that first goal which Osimhen actually had a big part in. All season long Gattuso couldn’t influence Insigne, Politano and Lozano to always find a way to give Osimhen the ball?? This rubbish has been going on all season and Gattuso of all people couldn’t address it?? It’s so pathetic. That’s exactly what Napoli deserves just like Leicester. For Napoli to be fighting for a champions league spot on the final day was down to Osimhen’s goals in the last 10 games or so, and in the most important game of all they bottled it just because the players around him are just running like headless chickens looking for personal glory. It is absolutely obvious like Dr. Drey said that Osimhen’s pace was already draining the Verona defense. After that goal they should sat deep and get them on the counter with Osimhen’s pace. Instead they’re the one who got burned on a counter. Gattuso definitely deserves to be fired. I hope the next coach will build the team around Osimhen because despite injuries, suspensions and covid he still scored 10 goals and provided 3 assists. And since he has returned to form he’s been really terrific. That’s why I’m not surprised that he was the only Napoli player dejected to the turf after the final whistle.

      Absolutely @Ayphilly, With Osimhen…sha ti nor siwaju ni.
      I hope the next Napoli coach will realize that. Gattuso and Napoli really disappointed. If not for Victor, I would have said it serves them right.
