UCL: Napoli coach Spalletti excited ahead of Rangers clash

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti is excited facing Champions League opponents Rangers on Wednesday night.

Napoli meet Rangers at Ibrox, where Spalletti is expecting a white hot atmosphere.

He said, “Rangers fans, their history, their city, it all gets poured into the stadium for those 90 minutes. You must be able to react within that emotional and even physical pressure, because all those elements are working together.

“I know my players well enough now to say they look ready to show what they can do in any context. They look a lot more confident and relaxed.

“I was glad when the draw was made for this group, because with Liverpool and Ajax, the games are all in historic arenas, it’s a great group for the sentimental football fan.

“We have played in places like this before, we know that we cannot beat them on an emotional level in their own stadium, so we have to do something different, keep the ball and say right, now we do what I want. Win the ball back, play it to feet and see if they will be good enough to play that type of football.”
