Andrea Pinamonti was very proud of Genoa for picking up a point against Napoli and credits new coach Thiago Motta with their “organisation.”
The 0-0 draw at the Stadio San Paolo saw Ionut Radu make a decisive save on Eljif Elmas, while Kalidou Koulibaly’s goal-line clearance denied Pinamonti from close range.
“It’s a very important point, as for any team to come to the San Paolo is always difficult, even more so for us in our current position in the table,” the striker told DAZN.
“I came close to a goal, but maybe I’ll be lucky in a few weeks and the ball will bounce off me into the net instead.”
The Grifone have turned a corner since Thiago Motta replaced Aurelio Andreazzoli on the bench.
“Since the new coach arrived, I think we’ve had some very good performances in terms of organisation. We snatched a point off a great team, but we’ve been playing better for a while now.”
On the other hand, Napoli are under immense pressure and were jeered throughout by their own fans.
“Certainly, when things aren’t going your way, it’s tough for anyone. Napoli are struggling at the moment and we tried to make it even more difficult for them.”
