Napoli coach, Rino Gattuso, was happy with their scratchy victory at Udinese.
Napoli won 2-1 through a late Tiemoue Bakayoko goal.
“The team is alive and kicking, but must always play at the top of its game, as we have important targets,” Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia.
“On Wednesday we lost an incredible game with Spezia, so it was tough here to get back on track, but I am glad that we took back what we dropped three days ago.”
Gattuso also said: “I don’t get angry with my players for their technique, it’s when they don’t smell fear. I think we are a team who repeatedly don’t spot the danger when it’s coming.
“I want to see a team that keeps going. I don’t want us to miss a chance, then I see immediately the defenders start complaining to each other, oh we missed a goal, that means we’re bound to concede one. No! We have to work as a team.
“We have to improve in when we’re under pressure, because I know I don’t have a side that can soak up pressure for ages, that’s not our approach, but we can do better than we are now. You can’t tell me that mentality cannot be improved or coached. I don’t believe it.”
