"We should've seen the game out when we were in complete control. While we played well Cremonese deserve a lot of credit." Luciano Spalletti gave his thoughts after Napoli were knocked out of the Coppa Italia.
"We're gutted because we performed well as per usual. We were in control of the game but we conceded right after the death, and we had two great chances to seal the game in normal time and hit the post with the goal gaping in extra time."
"We know that every game is difficult because each opponent we face plays with enthusiasm and bravery and if you don't see games out then you run the risk of slipping up at the end."
"We were in complete control of the game but they caught us out with their crossing. We didn't play badly at all, we were better than them for large parts of the game, but we were below our usual standards."
"Maybe we were lacking sharpness, we seemed to be less polished with our technique and decision-making and the game ended up going to penalties. Cremonese deserve credit for their performance and we need to dust ourselves down and hit the ground running again."
