At the conference: “The team is complete, you have to work out agreements with the newcomers, you get it by training together”

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti answered questions from journalists after the match at home against Lecce
“You also lose some balance because you have to lower yourself with so many players and the distances get longer. In the first half we were building slowly and then when we lost the ball they took us around because we weren’t short so we had a hard time. In the second half it was much better from the point of view of the game, but then they got into an atmosphere of rigor and it became more difficult.”
About new entries?
“We have to keep working together because then some distance can be found by training together, I haven’t been here for a long time and there is more progress to be made in terms of understanding and quality. This is very normal. I thought in the first half we would have some balance because I defended Raspadori with Elmas, but we had to start it a little better than the midfielders. We took that punishment that could have been avoided, and then they found that the uruguol complicates matters.”
Are there any alternate plans when you fail to possess evasive qualities?
“You can do everything and then finally with the attackers you have to be evenly balanced because you have to go and take back any turnovers. We tried to do things but with little quality and we didn’t always have the cleanliness that marked us. But we put balloons in the air, but we didn’t find the right space to conclude, it’s something that could happen”
Are you happy how you filled the area?
“We could have filled it better, in some moments the opposite midfielder was missing. We weren’t good, but there was research, we were unlucky in some episodes, but when they’re all inside the box it’s unlikely that much will happen to you”
In the market?
“I don’t expect anything, we did more or less what we had to do, we just have to find more understanding and look to be better for the whole 90 minutes”
“It is hard for Meret not to see him calm, because he is a beautiful, balanced person. It’s hard to see him different from what you know, he made a great tackle tonight so we are very confident and we knew we were dealing with a good goalkeeper.”
