Gennaro Gattuso told his side to get down and dirty

Napoli head coach Gennaro Gattuso had some advice for his squad after the Serie A victory on Sunday.

Gennaro Gattuso urged his side to be a “bit ugly” like him and maintained that, like Hollywood actor Brad Pitt, Napoli can not always be beautiful.

Napoli claimed a last-gasp 2-1 victory at Udinese thanks to Tiemoue Bakayoko’s 90th-minute winner in Serie A on Sunday.

In Serie A, Napoli is sixth, nine points adrift of Milan’s leaders, and head coach Gattuso told his team to get down and dirty.

“I don’t get angry with my players for their technique, it’s when they don’t smell fear. I think we are a team who repeatedly don’t spot the danger when it’s coming. I want to see a team that keeps going,” Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia.

“I don’t want us to miss a chance, then I see immediately the defenders start complaining to each other, oh we missed a goal, that means we’re bound to concede one. No! We have to work as a team.”

“We have to improve in when we’re under pressure, because I know I don’t have a side that can soak up pressure for ages, that’s not our approach, but we can do better than we are now. You can’t tell me that mentality cannot be improved or coached. I don’t believe it.”

“What happened with Spezia infuriated me, because the ball came off the post, we had five players ball-watching while Tommaso Pobega reacted quicker. That is a lack of determination, that is unacceptable.”

“Napoli wants to always be beautiful, but sometimes being a bit ugly is a good thing. You can’t always be Brad Pitt, with blonde hair and blue eyes. Sometimes you have to be a bit ugly, like me. I look worse than usual now, as I’m all puffed up due to the cortisone shots, but I feel better.”
