How to use Fabian Ruiz

Napoli’s Coppa Italia victory against Inter should give Gennaro Gattuso insight in getting the best out of Fabian Ruiz, writes Kaustubh Pandey.

It is not a huge surprise that Napoli are yet to concede a single goal in the Coppa Italia this season. It has been a case of putting the players in their preferred positions and doing that has led to clean sheets against Lazio and Inter – at this moment two of the best sides in Italy.
