Walter Zenga used beautiful words for Napoli and Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta after last Saturday’s match at the Maradona Stadium.
Walter Zenga, former goalkeeper of Inter and the Italian national team, spoke about the moment of the Italian championship through an interview released on the pages of Corriere dello Sport. “What do I bring in these first three months of the championship? The sweet aftertaste of Napoli-Atalanta, a match that is worth more than any spot in our league. An hour and a half beautiful. Spalletti-Gasperini challenge? Full of ideas, originality, initiatives, never banal choices. When I play Napoli or Atalanta I’m always in front of the TV, because that’s how I’ll have fun. “
Don’t shy away from your responsibilities: who will win, if possible?
“There is no escape from the top four and it is impossible, at present, given the percentages. And with technicians on the bench who think and weigh ”.
The strongest rose?
“I do not go around it, the first four are not there by divine right. They have an impressed level staff and are managed by modern technicians. Spalletti had the intelligence not to dismantle that he found and then put his knowledge, which is enormous, into it. “
The Oscar of beauty?
“Naples and Atalanta have bewitched me, especially in those 90 ‘”.
That of bad luck?
“Spalletti settled well, losing seven to Lobotka’s injury, and all at the same time. His Africa Cup started a month and a half early. But if you try them to deal with the emergency they are like those of their last performance, then you can rest assured. “
