Serie A: Gattuso angry Ronaldo scored in Napoli’s 2-1 win over Juventus

Napoli manager, Gennaro Gattuso, said he was angry that his players allowed Cristiano Ronaldo fire in a consolation goal during their 2-1 win over Juventus on Sunday.

It was Napoli’s first home league win since October and it followed a midweek Coppa Italia victory over Lazio.

Gattuso said he is not getting carried away with his side’s improvement.

Ronaldo’s 90th minute strike could not stop Juve from being inflicted their second defeat in Serie A this season.

But Gattuso said he was pained by the goal, “I was angry at the Ronaldo goal, because we can’t let anything slip at the moment,” Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia .

“We beat two good teams now, fine, but we are still in trouble, still a long way back and need to keep pushing.

“I go home tonight and will still keep thinking about the [2-0] defeat to Fiorentina, because that was just shocking.
“I congratulate the lads for the work they’ve done over the last seven days, but we have to keep going like this now, do not let up, focus on Napoli 24 hours a day.

“We didn’t do that well in possession today, but did far better when covering, blocking off the passes and the overlapping runs were timed properly.”
