Mr.Baldini, Conference before the derby against Messina ACR
After the victory with Monterosi, the rosanero will face Messina and the coach wants to restart from the second half on Sunday, in which the team played with incisiveness, creating two sensational scoring chances: that of Valente and that of Soleri. This time, therefore, Baldini wants to see that incisiveness from the first half. The coach asks for more scoring, even if to find the right harmony in attack it still takes a few games.
Baldini also focused on an unknown factor in Palermo’s first matches: Andrea Silipo, who never set foot on the pitch with the new coach. You have to take it into your head that he is talented, but he has to increase the hunger, the intensity and make me understand that he can make me win games. The team also needs someone who runs without the ball, who is tactically careful. When he has done this, he will be able to find space as a starter.

Reader / Mr.Baldini, Conference before the derby against Messina ACR
Zamparini is part of the history of Palermo. He introduced the city to real football, football that counts. He is sorry when a person leaves. The only thing in favor of him that I can say is that we will try to send him a message by winning the next game and dedicating the victory to him. I don’t mince words. As president, he hurt me a lot, but I am a Christian and I have always forgiven him. Some wounds heal over time.
I have no beautiful anecdotes with him, the only thing is that he was the one who brought me to Palermo.
The possession phase is more complicated, but I believe that the Palermo players have the technique to do it well. We still need a few games, but even in Catanzaro and with Monterosi, even though they are not an incisive team, there have been scoring opportunities. We must be calm and confident.
With Messina I want more incisiveness, see more scoring. The other night, with Monterosi, we played in the second half: two sensational ones, that of Valente and that of Soleri. There was incisiveness there, but with Messina, you have to play like this from the first half.
Silipo must take it into his head that he is talented, but he must increase the ‘hunger’, the intensity and make me understand that he can make me win games. The team also needs someone who runs without the ball, who is tactically careful. When he has made this journey, he will find space.
Messina? We don’t care who we meet, we have to play to the maximum with everyone. We just have to look for the ‘real’ Palermo.
