Serie A Happy with Napoli’s win against Udinese
Gennaro Gattuso has always had a good sense of humour and the Napoli boss showed that again after their hard-fought 2-1 defeat of Udinese on Sunday.
Previously, Gattuso had joked self-detrimentally about the doubts he had about his own ability after seeing Andrea Pirlo play.
“When I saw Pirlo I wondered if I should change profession,” he once joked, remembering his time at AC Milan.
Now, he’s making headlines again for another light-hearted comment about his side’s most recent win.
“We suffered, but we were brave,” he began.
“Sometimes you have to play the violin less.
“You don’t always have to be like Brad Pitt. Sometimes you have to be like Calimero [a character in an animated Italian cartoon, along the same lines as the Ugly Duckling], a little ugly and dirty.”
