Verona-Lazio, Tudor: “Only Frabotta out. Gunter? De Ligt is also wrong ”
“We worked well. It will be a difficult match, against a team made up of quality players and a strong coach like Sarri. We needed this busy week to work on certain things, some players who were not at their best have grown. I’m curious to see a nice Verona, which makes progress. The goal is to continue this positive moment“. like this Igor Turdor, coach ofHellas Verona, in the press conference on the eve of the championship match against Lazio. Tudor will have almost the entire team available, as he himself explains: “Frabotta is not among those called up, the others are all there. I don’t think the team is male. To play this kind of football, which is special, feeling good is not enough. We need to feel even better. We worked well from this point of view too, let’s see tomorrow“.
INDIVIDUALS – Up Simeone and Kalinic, the Scaligeri coach said: “It depends on the feelings I have. These are strong players, they are doing well. It is not possible to have them play together at the moment: I struggle to keep one out, but I’m glad they’re both fine. This way I prefer to have less choice. Lasagna is growing, I have seen it very well this week, Caprari is doing very well as a second striker, Barak is always dangerous. Now we expect the fifths to give us their contribution up front: for Serie A they are two important players, and they can make a difference. We have created enough up front, we need to find some solidity behind, making it more difficult for opponents to present themselves in our area. But with this type of game it is normal to give a little something: it is a way of thinking about football and must be accepted. Sometimes it feels good, sometimes it doesn’t, but this is the way“.
THE TEAM – “I think the squad is built well – Tudor explained -. A coach can always ask for something, but in the middle we have Hongla, who we haven’t seen yet and is a valuable player, Tameze who is good and stayed out in Milan for my choice. Then football with the five substitutions has changed: the coach can afford something more, he can take risks and eventually change the game. I always talk to the guys in this direction, I ask them to be ready, and they have almost always given me good answers“.
GUNTER – “I put Gunter among the three most important players of Verona. For me he is a strong player. If we want to see a shit, or the other, that’s fine: De Ligt did it too last year, who for me is the strongest defender in the world. Then I would like to see others play man against man throughout the game like he does. He’ll be there tomorrow, despite missing a couple of contracts, and I’m happy“.
LAZIO – “A Lazio of great quality. Serious players, who are embarking on a new path: before they played five, now they play four and go high. Danger is everywhere – explained the Verona coach -. We studied them well, I think we prepared the race well, with our weapons and our strength. I expect a serious game from my players: a good match, at home, with our fans. Can’t wait for it to start“.
