Napoli coach Gattuso pleased with victory over Rijeka

Napoli coach Rino Gattuso was happy with their 2-0 win over Europa League opponents Rijeka.

Matteo Politano opened the scoring before Hirving Lozano secured the 2-0 result.

Gattuso said, “All games are difficult, because even against a local side, it's going to be tough if you don't approach it the right way.

“This performance was much better than three weeks ago away to Rijeka, but we still made far too many mistakes and got pig-headed trying to find through balls. It was certainly an improvement.

“We've won eight of our last 11 games, but if people think we are Galacticos or like Barcelona, they are badly wrong. What I want to see is hunger, the desire to help each other out and work together."
