Pastore blames late loss to Napoli on tactics

Palermo starlet Javier Pastore believes that his team lost against Napoli due to a failure in tactics at the San Paolo. Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the Argentinean expressed his disappointment at the result.
“Tonight we played a formation that we are not used to playing often. It was very hard to link up with the forwards, we were alone upfront”.
Palermo were never really in the game apart from a few opportunities on the counter-attack as the Partenopei dominated the game and enjoyed a lion’s share of the chances.
“We perhaps lacked a defensive midfielder. We were too distant in the midfield and attack and I felt that we play better when we are a bit more closer together”, continued the Argentinean in his assessment of the game.
The loss left Palermo in six points while Napoli consolidated their fourth spot in the standings as they moved level on points with third placed Juventus. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
