Napoli boss, Luciano Spalletti has reacted to his team’s exit from the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The second leg of the semi-final tie ended 1-1 at the Diego Maradona Stadium after the first leg at the San Siro was 1-0 in favour of the home side.
Olivier Giroud gave the visitors the lead shortly before the first-half whistle but Victor Osimhen waited till the 93rd minute to score the equalizer there was no time for a comeback
The manager told reporters after the game that his team was naive, adding that their key attacker, Victor Osimhen struggled because he could not have in-depth training with the squad before the match.
Before scoring the opener, Giroud had missed from the spot after Rafael Leao was brought down inside the box.
Napoli also had a penalty saved by the AC Milan goalkeeper.
“We were a little naive. Even Osimhen struggled, but he trained for three days, and when you’re close to the game, you don’t do training where you raise pressure-building and the open field raids.
“We arrived with some not trained at their best and some problems from the national teams.
“Milan won deservedly because they capitalised on the chances,” the Italian said.
