^To be fair, anyone who could see that Gattuso was doing a great job last season. Clubs and owners did see that clearly, he was in the running for so many good jobs in the last few months.

I hope he does really well and they go deep in the CL.

I donít think Gattuso is really a good match for Napoli. Possession attacking football compared to Catenaccio. Then again people can adapt and overcome.

Catenaccio is nothing similar to the style of football that Gattuso trained at Milan. And the more defensive, sit-back style that we played from November or December last year was purely an adjustment due to the inability of our defenders to defend in a more modern offensive style. Gattuso's first instinct was to play the more free-flowing style that we had played prior to that.

It showed a lot of aspects of Catenaccio, narrow fullback and defending wingers. Last man defender next to a proactive center back. Having your full 11 on your own half doing man marks. Soaking pressure and hitting on breaks, itís how most our open goals came. Itís the reason we struggled against defensive teams. In his year and half of top flight experience with two/three transfer markets in his name the conclusive system that was most effective for him was a variation of Catenaccio.

It depends on how you see Gattuso and his tactical prowess. At Milan, many saw his style as pragmatic and hard-to-break-down. There was little leeway for him to get the Napoli job considering that every man and his dog were aware of his limitations as a coach.

But I think Rino will turn the ship around and bring some results, not because of his tactics or his style of play, but because of his leadership and simplicity. During the season, Napoli have needed less of submissive yes-men, tactics, instructions and all that jazz - but Gattuso's voice to mend the relationship between the president and players, after months of complications.

Re: Gattuso's next job, I always imagined him at a club like Genoa, and at best, Fiorentina. Ergo, yes, I'd never imagine that he would get a job at a top 3 club, whose goal is to surge their way into top 4 and go on a deep run in the Champions League, a competition that Gattuso has no manegerial experience in. In hindsight, however, there's much to say...

Luckily for Rino, that Milan experience did him wonders. Now, it remains to see if he has learnt from his mistakes.

Gattuso's style and effectiveness now is very similar to Ancelotti's in his early days. They are both managers who are not wedded to any tactical systems but rely on managing a group in the best way possible. I really enjoy managers like that.

I’d rather have Rino jobless than him managing Napoli.

It’ll hurt to see him in another team.

This. People seem to have totally forgotten the way we played first games last season and what he really wanted to do. Shit squad and tons of injuries made him change his approach and he still pretty much delivered under those circumstances.

I think he'll do great at Napoli, which is unfortunate for us. Hopefully he gets to continue growing there and comes back to us in 2 years, when we're also be at a more mature stage.

It will, but he did well here regardless of what people did. In retrospect, everyone who wanted him gone would've kept him in a heartbeat for this season.

A shame it didn't work out, and wish him the best at Napoli except where it would go against Milan.

Nah I donít see it, Gattusos stock is up bc weíre doing shit this season but ADL is taking a huge risk that I wouldnít expect a regular top 2 to make. Coming from a Tusso lover.

Koulibaly


A very good CB, but ADL should've accepted the highest bid instead of giving him that massive raise that stirred shit up in the dressing room.
And now he's injured.

Koulibaly-Manolas is the CB duo that has conceded the most goals per game this season. 36m + 4.5m salary for Manolas.
Meanwhile Roma has found their best CB duo in years in Smalling-Mancini.
