Giuntoli: 'Napoli need more players'

Napoli director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli confirms they will bring in at least one midfielder for Gennaro Gattuso, but “we need to find ourselves again.”

The game with Inter kicks off at 19.45 GMT, click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“It’s an important match for Inter, for Napoli, the first of 2020 and we hope to start off where we ended the last year,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

The January transfer window is open and there are strong reports midfielder Stanislav Lobotka will arrive from Celta Vigo.

“The coach has changed system to 4-3-3, so even in terms of numbers, we need to bring someone in to be at Mister Gattuso’s disposal.

“Paradoxically, it’s early to discuss objectives. We need to find ourselves again. We saw something in the last game with Sassuolo and hope that can grow into a real turning point.”

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked on December 10 to make way for Gattuso, but they ended an eight-round Serie A winless streak with a stoppage-time victory at Sassuolo.

“Gattuso had a strong impact with the lads and the fans. He is very passionate, determined and also a very capable coach, so we are very happy with him.”
