“If it had happened, I would have left the field! Shield? We will fight until the end to win it”
John Jesusdefender of Naplesspoke to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli during transmission “Radio Goal” to talk about his experience with the blue shirt. The following items are highlighted:
“Goal cancelled? I thought I was going out of the field because it’s not possible, what’s wrong this time, then finally it went well and I managed to score.
“Current situation ? Those who are there have shown that they are doing well, you have to have respect for the jersey, even for the teammates who have gone out. We lack strong players, but the ones we have are just as strong. We showed that there was still something to improve and to do, we demonstrated it with facts”.
“Venice-Naples? We have to play them all, let’s try to get a good result. We think race after race, it’s a tough month. It must be nice to play against Barcelona, Inter and Lazio. A footballer always wants to play games like this”.
“Goals ? We know what our characteristics are, we aim to win, in the first place. We do not fail to respect other teams, we are Napoli and we must always aim for victory. I’m not superstitious, I’m not afraid to tell him certain things. We will always try to win, Scudetto, the Europa League”.
“Our daughter will be born in July and by choice of my wife will be born in Brazil. It will be half Neapolitan because it was designed in Naples”.
“I came to Naples not to prove who I was, I have been in Italy for 10 years. I have always worked, never been controversial, I have always had respect for the clubs in which I have played. Each coach makes their choices, then everyone can make mistakes. I do my job at Napoli, I have a one-year contract but not to brag. If I stay next year, I don’t know, it’s the coach or the director who will decide. I will also decide, but it does not depend only on me”.
“Barcelona? We’ll try to throw them out, we know they’re not having a good time. However they have a great trainer, they made a good market. We will fight to win the trophy, both in the Europa League and in Serie A”.
“Are you coming back? Very importantly, Koulibaly is the commander. Anguissa was very strong, I didn’t expect it. It is a very important winter market, these yields are fundamental”.
“Tuanzebe? He is settling in very well, he played against Fiorentina. He’s a physical, technical player, he’s young: he’s a rock, he looks bigger, he doesn’t look like ’97. He comes from English football, where there are less tactics, but he fits in very well. Physically there is no discussion”.
“City of Naples? Fan love is different. In Milan you can run a little quietly, in Rome the supporters are very warm. In Napoli it is as if we footballers belong to the family of the supporters, they are very friendly. It’s a very nice experience, the hotel staff also encourage and support you. Everyone in the street stops you”.
“The Pizza and the buffalo mozzarella they are very good, wherever you go you eat very well. I wake up with the sea in front of me, before living in Milan with the fog. Rome is beautiful, but the sea in Naples is something else”.
“Naples-Salerno? We weren’t supposed to cash out, but we were smart to start over immediately. Elmas was very good at dribbling 5/6 and finding the penalty. We have shown that we are smart, that we don’t have to draw and that we have a quality team”.
