Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti rues late Roma draw

John Solano

Ex-Roma and current Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti lamented the late goal his side conceded against his former employers, who held his team to a 1-1 draw.

The Partenopei struggled throughout the second half against Jose Mourinho’s side and were ultimately punished by an injury time leveler from Stephan El Shaarawy.

Speaking to DAZN at full-time, Spalletti weighed in, “There’s a bit of disappointment, I thought we conducted ourselves well in this game for the most part.”

“We were up against a strong team that gave us problems on a few occasions. Obviously the biggest regret, though, comes from the final stretch of the match. We didn’t do well at keeping hold of the ball even though our midfielders were fresh.”

He continued, “But then we conceded a goal that was completely avoidable from a tactical point of view. However, we played really good football for long stretches.”

“This result punishes us in the table but we still have our dignity because of the football we played. In fact, we could’ve scored an additional goal in the first half.”

“But we suffered too much after the break.”
