The sporting director of Napoli was a guest on Kiss Kiss Napoli TV: “Summer market? An advantage not only for me, but for the club.”
Cristiano Giuntoli He did a great job at the summer market. Among others, two players have arrived in Naples who, although they are not well known, are doing well in the Italian league: Kim and Kvaratschilia. Then many others. The sports director of the Campania association released some statements to the microphones of the Kiss Kiss Napoli TV channel: “Have you done an excellent job? Credit is not only to me, but the boss and all the staff.” Kvaratskhelia? There are many reports that we take into consideration. In the past they asked for a lot of money that could not be spent. We waited for the war to break out, which allowed us a less expensive channel. We got this guy home quickly. Has a new era begun in Naples? For football teams, it always takes a while to blend together. The coach needs time, and needs a little patience to maximize the qualities of the players. Is this the team you built? It’s not the Naples Giuntoli, it’s De Laurentiis, Spalletti, Giuntoli’s Naples and everyone who works with us. It’s not easy to get rid of a team to the core and then integrate the players. I don’t care when I hear things, I just care that Napoli is at a high level.”.
“Each player has his own story, you do not know what is behind each player: requests, renewals and other things. I’ve been here for 8 years. How is Osimhen? He has a little discomfort in the adductor muscle, no injury, he will decide with the doctor a few hours before the game against Liverpool, we will see if it is appropriate to take the risk or not. Merritt? We always focused on him, but he always had a lot of injuries. Last year he had two breaks and lost 40 days, with Ancelotti always playing at the start, then Ospina proved himself because of the match from behind. For us he is an important player. Navas? We found ourselves in Primavera with four players on the deadline, Koulibaly, Fabian, Ounas and Meret. We got to a point where they had to refurbish or sell. Thus, after our relationship was very good with PSG who were looking for a player with Fabian’s qualities, we came to some kind of agreement to help each other, we gave them Fabian and they will help us with Navas. But then we realized that Navas could no longer come because of a mistake with the French club, but we were good at selling Fabian himself. renewal? The prosecutor always told us to see who should get to Naples, and now that he has the property, I don’t think there are any problems. When he comes back from vacation, we sit with him and talk.”
“Cristiano Ronaldo’s proposal? It’s bad to extinguish the dreams of the fans, there were no real negotiations. Nobody questions the qualities of the Portuguese, but we stick to our players. Where can this Napoli go? Napoli must not score goals. We must try to win all the matches, We can compete against anyone, time will tell.”
“Merret? He is definitely the best in recent years, against Lazio he saved wonderfully with a header. He has great flexibility and managed to cover the goal well. He has already played more than 100 games with Napoli and is not. It is a coincidence.”
“Napoli – Liverpool? A very difficult match, but it will definitely be for them too. Ndombele is still at the top? He is definitely a bit out of the competition, he has great qualities, but he still suffers because he misses the game. The coach has to be good. To make him in condition Good. We already tackled him a few years ago, so we already knew his entourage. In my opinion at the moment he is more suitable to play in 4-3-3. There is a lot of redemption right there, but we have him.”
“Raspadori? We wanted an Italian player with his characteristics, his great desire to come to Napoli was in our favour. Is this Zielinski’s year? Hopefully, last year he didn’t play well, this year he started with the right foot. He can cover more roles. Raspadori striker ?I think he can.Is it easier to talk to Spalletti or De Laurentiis?Relationship with Luciano is a citizen of my country, he speaks like me and he would come to play the zone tournament.I feel good with him.Which team surprises me?Inter Lukaku, very strong Milan, faced Roma He made a great move. The apartment is open, I find it difficult to identify a specific team. Will my contract expire in 2024? Zero (laughs)!”
“Racist choruses towards the Neapolitans? Naples is an exceptional city, it is a football center without inhibitions, the pressure makes us feel alive. The more others hold us, the stronger we must become. After 8 years I also feel Napoli and I proud, it means that they fear us.”
