“We deserved to win», insisted the French coach of Naples Rudi Garcia, after the draw of his team, reigning Italian champion, in Bologna (0-0) on Sunday during the 5th day, its third consecutive match without a victory.
“The only negative point of the evening was the result. We deserved to win, that’s why I’m disappointed, but the team’s performance satisfied me“, Garcia said at a press conference.
“We really played as a team, it was a serious match, in the first half, we created a lot of chances and Bologna didn’t have a single chance. We dictated the pace of the game, even if at the start of the second half, we let them take initiatives“, he continued.
After five days, Naples is already seven points behind the leader, Inter Milan who achieved a flawless performance with 15 points.
Napoli hit the left post of the Bologna goal in the 5th minute by Victor Osimhem who then missed a penalty.
“A victory is sometimes decided to the nearest centimeter. Missing a penalty happens to everyone, even the greatest players like Victor“, he noted.
Garcia did not return in the press conference to Osimhen’s gesture of displeasure towards him when he was replaced at the end of the match.
“We have a quality group, with players on the bench who can bring something“, simply underlined the French technician.
On the platform DAZNhe had indicated earlier “having spoken with Victor» at the end of the match, without wanting to specify the content of the discussion.
