INTERVIEWS “We won a match that was not at all easy on the eve of the match – said Barbara Damiani, coach of the Napoli Nuoto team -. I am satisfied with the team’s performance because already in the first half we made it clear that we wanted to put it downhill. Of course we committed some lightness in defense by giving a little something to the opponents. These are mistakes that we must correct and we must no longer commit in the future. Today I had all the players on the roster play also to make everyone understand that each of them, even those who play only for a minute, is important for the compactness of the group and for the game itself. Next week we have two engagements with Torre del Grifo and Brizz Nuoto, between Saturday and Sunday, where we will go there to win them “.
