Many coaches say their players need a kick up the backside, but only a few like Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso actually do it.
The Partenopei were celebrating the 2-0 victory over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday evening.
It was earned with a Dries Mertens brace, including a header on the assist from Matteo Politano.
After the final whistle, Gattuso was congratulating his players when Politano evidently said something a little cheeky to his boss.
Everyone knows Rino is hands-on with his man-management techniques, so he responded with a firm kick up the backside.
This is the only comment we’ll get from Gattuso, as Napoli are still refusing to speak to the media.
