Napoli goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, spoke to Sky Sport after a match in which his Napoli won against bottom of the table Crotone 2-1.
Coming off a string of 3 losses in a row, it was very important for Napoli to get back to winning ways, and even though it was not pretty in the slightest, they got the job done. Here is what Reina had to say following the victory:
“It was a victory of character, we were down to 10 men and we worked very hard for one another. With this mentality, albeit a performance that was not pretty, we will go far. We definitely need to still learn and improve, we need more balance and continuity. Today in defense we were at the height of the match even though we played an hour down to 10 men, this is the pillar of Napoli and it needs to stay that way.”
On his big save:
“I didn’t need to respond to anyone, but to demonstrate to myself and to my teammates that my true level is that of today. I can also make mistakes, but when they happen you need to quickly turn the page.”
