Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso insists that his team won’t be intimidated when they go up against Barcelona in the Champions League knockout stages.
The Italian, who took over from Carlo Ancelotti just last week, spoke after his side were drawn against the reigning Spanish champions in the last-16 draw on Monday.
“Barcelona are a great team and a great challenge – it’ll be two fascinating games,” he told UEFA.
“We will face them without fear.”
Gattuso is set to take charge of his first European game this season after Ancelotti guided Napoli to the knockout stages before being fired.
He will also hope to improve the fortunes of his team who currently sit in eighth place in Serie A.
