Naples coach Gennaro Gattuso admitted that “only crazy people like me will continue” after revealing that he is suffering from a relapse of autoimmune disease.

Former Milan and Italian midfielders suffer from an autoimmune disease known as myasthenia gravis.
This is a condition that weakens the muscles that control the eyes and causes the eyelids to sag, but it can also cause severe malaise and diplopia.
Nonetheless, Gattuso continued, but the Naples boss admitted that he was suffering.
“I admit I wasn’t myself for the last 12 days,” Gattuso said at a press conference, skipping media missions for an outing in front of Naples.
“I want to appeal to everyone who looks in the mirror and sees something strange or incorrect, especially children. Life is beautiful. I accept everything.

“Looking at me like this, the young people suffered too much. I know it, but I’m alive. I’ve been suffering from myasthenia gravis for 10 years and it burned badly. This is the third time, but it’s gone and my eyes are back to normal.
“Not only does it look ugly, but this condition is really tiring. Moreover, watching a double 24 hours a day really makes me sick. Only crazy people like me continue.
“But this is my life and there is something worse. Some people think they still have a month left, but it’s okay. When they die, go to where they lived on the soccer field. I want to. “
Naples enjoyed a good start to the season, but has come to an end in recent games and won one of the last five games in every tournament.
