Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti talked about the comparisons between Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and his team’s Kvaratskeli player, after his brilliance at the beginning of this season.
Kvaratskhelia participated with Napoli since joining the team at the beginning of the season in 16 matches, during which he scored 8 goals and assisted 10 others.
Spalletti had previously coached Salah when he was a player in Rome.
Napoli is preparing to face Liverpool in the final round of the Champions League group stage on Tuesday at Anfield.
Spalletti said during the match’s press conference: “The comparison between Mohamed Salah and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia? They are two players who were able in a different way to give a great performance because what we are talking about is that you can play simple football and they are able to turn it into an opportunity for the team.”
“They have this ease of shooting and dribbling as they run at 2,000 kilometers per hour, both convinced of their potential for simplicity as good men and ready to help everyone at all times,” he continued.
He added, “Liverpool is a very good team and we should not be deceived by the result of the last match that I watched well and the previous matches between us, so I see that Liverpool is the team that it used to be and it is clear that if they miss 10 goals against the goalkeeper and by chance all the attacks they receive are going badly.” So the results can be called into question.”
He stressed, “If we could spend more money, it would be easier, but if you were organized, you would have a greater chance of achieving a positive result like Napoli. We were able during the current season to sign players who can make the difference and be among the top players who receive the highest wages.”
“We are in a position to develop further, but it is up to the club that has signed good players from the beginning.”
The first international match ended with Napoli winning by four goals to zero at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
The two teams qualified for the round of 16 of the tournament.
Napoli is at the top of Group A, achieving the full mark with 15 points, 3 points behind Liverpool, and the team has not lost any game since the beginning of the season in all competitions.
