Criticism and self-criticism from Napoli's boss
Aurelio Del Laurentiis lit fires in view of the final Cup between Napoli and Juventus. The president of Napoli put up with the former coach of the "partenopei" and now of the "bianconeri", Mauricio Sari.
"He angered me with his excuses and led me to change coach even though he had a two-year contract. Until the last game, it created uncertainty in the team. Everyone says that we had an unforgettable season with him, but in football you also need an excellent manager to succeed. Who brought Cavani, Matsari, Benitez and Higuain here? Sari? But when I chose them, I saw people protesting against me, "said the Napoli bomber.

Favre: "Haaland Continuing to play Haland can be dangerous"
Lucien Favre wants to be careful with Erling Haland, as the risk of being "burned" by consecutive games is not negligible
Erling Haland's dedication and thirst for racing and training has driven Lucien Favre crazy. However, the Dortmund coach advised the young striker to manage his strengths, as this is an important factor in football.
After all, there are many cases of young players who started their careers impressively and in the process "burned". So, Favre wants to be careful to have an attacker with the Norwegian.
"I think everyone knows we need a center forward behind Haland. It makes sense, as Erling is only 19 years old. It makes sense to get tired when we have 3 games in a week. He cannot do everything alone.
It is still in a process of maturation. He has been injured twice since he came to us and that is something we need to be careful about. Continuing to play can be dangerous.
He has to figure it out himself, as it doesn't make sense for a player to play non-stop. We need Haland in every match, but what matters is that he is healthy.
I like his mentality, I like that he wants to play and win all the time. But he must learn to manage some things. He has a lot of future ahead of him and if he is healthy he will do incredible things. "
