said Napoli and Dutch legend defender Ruud Kroll.스포츠토토
Napoli’s trend continued in the UEFA Champions League. A 2-0 win over Frankfurt in a formidable away match in Germany. They struggled in the first half, but despite the bad news of missing a penalty kick, Osimen and Di Lorenzo scored consecutively to win a valuable victory. In the second leg at home, if Napoli doesn’t lose by more than 3 points, they will land in the first UEFA Champions League quarter-final stage since its founding.
After the Frankfurt game, Kroll compared Napoli to Cruyff’s Ajax in their prime. As with Michels’ Ajax, Napoli was also praised for the structured football shown under Spalletti’s system.
According to the report of ‘Calcio Napoli 1926’, which mainly deals with Napoli news, Kroll said, “I saw Napoli playing happily. “Napoli are the favorites to win Serie A. They are also among the favorites to win the UEFA Champions League.”
He continued, “Napoli is a great team. There is a lot of talk about Napoli in the world as well as in the Netherlands.”
During this process, Kroll did not forget to mention the ‘Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae. Crawl praised him, saying, “I like Min-jae Kim very much. He goes to the front, but even if he makes mistakes, he doesn’t cause problems. It’s like a reliable professional Knox.”
He also praised, saying, “I saw the Napoli players come together. They became a piece of work under Spalletti’s management system, just like Cruyff and Ajax did many years ago.”
In the case of Kroll, he was at Ajax from 1968 to 1980. With Ajax, he won three European Cups (formerly UEFA Champions League), and along with Cruyff, he is a key player in Ajax and the Netherlands’ golden age. He is a legend who was named the best team in the tournament in both 1974 and 1978 World Cups.
He is a legend who knows more about Cruyff and Ajax than anyone else. If Michels’ Ajax played total soccer in the past, Spalletti Napoli also dreams of conquering the European stage by going beyond Serie A with dynamism as a weapon. Naples, which was a question mark just before the season, was able to quickly become a mainstream player as the performances of freshmen including Kim Min-jae and Kvarachcelia, and the leadership of coach Spalletti shined.
