Napoli defender Min-jae Kim commented on the Partenopei boss Luciano Spalletti as his side prepare to face Milan in the quarterfinals of the competition.

The two sides faceoff in the first leg tonight at San Siro before the return leg next week at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

“Spalletti? Obviously his tactical approach has had an influence but I think the biggest factor is his passion,” the defender told

“When it comes to this I’ve never seen a manager like Spalletti, he easily possesses more passion than any other player. His desire to win games is enormous.”

Finally, “Our team is very aggressive and not afraid of anything. I think the manager has had a dramatic impact in this regard.”
