Gennaro Gattuso will prepare his Napoli side like they are going to war in the return leg of the Champions League clash with Barcelona in three weeks.

Napoli took a surprise lead against Barcelona. But unfortunately, Gattuso’s men could not hold out for a win against the mighty Barcelona.

The visitors snatched an away goal to put Napoli in a difficult but not unassailable position.

Gattuso insists he was happy with his side, but could not hide his disappointment in conceding the goal.

In his post-match interview reported by Goal, the Italian insists he will adopt a very specific strategy as there is still all to play for in the second leg.

He said:

“There is some disappointment, we suffered but the team did almost everything right from a tactical point of view.”

“I am happy about this, perhaps we could have done better passing.”

“This is the only regret.”

“Nothing is over for us when we’re playing the last 16 in the Champions League.”

“We know the difficulties we are going through.”

“We will buy helmets and armor, get all the necessary [tools] and will play the next game.”

“Nothing is over.”
