Napoli’s boss Gennaro Gattuso isn’t usually shy about expressing his thoughts and feelings about his club’s form.

Heading into next month’s Champions League matchup with Barcelona, Napoli aren’t in the best of form. They currently sit 7th in the Serie A table after defeat to Parma last time out.

“If we continue like this, with this attitude and performance, the only thing I can assure you is we won’t even tickle Barça in the Champions League.”

“We’re making too many mistakes and our opponents are punishing us. It’s happened a lot of times now and we must correct that because it’s causing us too many problems.”

Let’s hope he’s right and they don’t tickle Barca.
