Napoli coach Spalletti happy with Kim and Kvaratskhelia


Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti has welcomed new arrivals Kim Min-Jae and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Spalletti was speaking after their 1-1 draw with Real Mallorca in preseason.

He said, “It was a little bit good, but a little bit off the mark. We had some difficulties in handling the ball, it was moving slowly and they were marked

“Then if you play with two different systems, if you are not aggressive, you are stuck in the middle and you never recover the ball. In the second half we had to do better.

“It's like that, whoever comes on creates these difficulties, fouling, diving, fights, better when there are real matches because you spend a lot of time on fouls that aren't there and there is no rhythm."

On Kim, he said: “Very good, he showed physicality and skill with his feet, he is a responsive, muscular, a technical guy."

And for Kvaratskhelia, Spalletti stated: “He did well, the others as well, he has the ability to beat his man, he wasn't lucky in some situations, but he did well, for sure. We'll all have to do better, but in the first half we did very well."
