Gattuso in trouble, injuries and suspensions cripple the defense

Gattuso in trouble, injuries and suspensions cripple the defense

Napoli won not without difficulty 1-2 in the transfer against Udinese, however the troubles with the absences for the coach Gennaro Gattuso continue to increase and finally besides the attack, the defense is in minimal numbers.

This is after the Greek defender Costas Manolas was injured against Udinese, while the Italian Giovanni di Lorenzo has completed the number of yellow cards and will not be available to the coach for the match with Fiorentina at the weekend.

That is why coach Gattuso will be forced to risk the Senegalese Khalidou Koulibaly, who is recovering from injury, or to trust the Rrahmani-Maksimovic duo, who are not showing any security.

Bad news also comes from striker Victor Osimhen, who continues to be affected by the coronavirus, but who, moreover, has not yet passed the shoulder injury and in all likelihood, will return to the field only at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, against Fiorentina, he is expected to return to the Belgian bench Dries Mertens, who has been missing for several weeks and who can play a few minutes against the purple team, to gradually find his form.
