Koulibaly: Spalletti inspired 10-man Napoli to ‘painful’ victory in Serie A opener


Despite Victor Osimhen's expulsion in the first-half, the Parthenopeans scored two second-half goals to start the season with a win

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has credited manager Luciano Spalletti for their 2-0 victory over Venezia in their Serie A opening game on Sunday.

The hosts suffered a huge blow after Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen was shown a straight red card in the 23rd minute for violent conduct.

His sending off made Napoli play the majority of the encounter with 10 players, but they still came out on top with goals from Lorenzo Insigne and Eljif Elmas in the second-half.
