Koulibaly: ‘Napoli 100% behind Gattuso’

Kalidou Koulibaly has confirmed Napoli players are 100% behind their coach Gennaro Gattuso: ‘There are no problems with him.’

Reports in Italy had claimed Gattuso and Napoli players had had a dressing room bust-up after their defeat against Milan last weekend.

“It was an important game and it’s a pity we lost it,” Koulibaly said.

“We know what we got wrong, we didn’t have the right mentality, episodes were crucial.

“We didn’t concede a lot, it’s hard to mark Ibra, he scored two difficult goals.

“On a technical level we did the game we had to do. Today’s criticisms are motivating us, we want to prove that we are not what people say today. There are no problems with the coach and his staff.

“We are 100% behind Gattuso,” Koulibaly insisted.

“We lost against the Serie A table leaders, we must be aware that people fear us, that’s why there are so many criticisms. We need to be aware of this, we’ll prove it tomorrow and on Sunday.”
