Mr.Baldini, Conference before the match against Potenza
Baldini: “Potenza in shape, but we can win”
We traveled well, we left by plane and arrived this afternoon ”. These are the first words of Silvio Baldini, Palermo coach, who spoke at the press conference on the eve of the away match against Potenza.
Outside the home the performance was comforting. Before Andria I had seen some excellent training sessions, it seemed impossible not to make a full booty last Wednesday. But this is football. Even when you train well but the opponent does not enter your soul, what happened against Andria can happen.
Tomorrow we have to play Francavilla and Avellino with the result of the latter. The boys trained very well. Petrucci (athletic trainer of the rosanero, ed) told the boys: ‘You have dynamite in your legs’ and this comment gave me confidence. When the team goes like this they have to try in every way to get full loot. On synthetic grass we train every day, I believe that as in Avellino, also synthetic grass there, we can achieve results.
Baldini, on the striker wearing the number 9 shirt, said that: “Brunori got the message. He cares a lot about Palermo. In the second part of last Wednesday’s race, he had already done much better. He is keen to do well and to ensure that Palermo gets the promotion, he doesn’t care that much to become the top scorer. He wants to give the fans the joy of promotion ”.
“I have no problems saying the team that will start tomorrow – admits Baldini during the press conference -. Here is what it will be: Massolo; Doda, Lancini, Marconi, Giron; De Rose, Dall’Oglio; Valente, Luperini, Felici; Brunori. Play Doda because he has worked hard and has grown a lot.
This time I choose it for its tactical aspect, unlike the challenge from Catanzaro. I saw that the desire is there on everyone’s part. I also saw this desire on Tuesday. Tomorrow is a tough match, we have to be ready and we are. The Potenza is in shape, but it doesn’t have to scare us or worry us. If we play Palermo we can manage the game. We have the chance to win this race ”.
“Underestimating the commitment, absolutely not, as it was not done with the Andria. We just weren’t focused on Wednesday. We have stretched up to 32/35 meters and they have been able to create the goal situation. Instead, they have always been enclosed, in the most important moments of the game, on 22/24 meters. These distances give us advantages, to be close and compact with the lines when the opponents have the ball.
There must be no other difficulties. We must try to steal as many balls as possible. Luperini is very good at it and this allows us to create different scoring situations. This is the advantage we found in Avellino and we must always find it, ”concluded the Palermo coach.
