“The important thing is not to repeat the bad first half in Verona. In my opinion we have the quality to make it. The attacking problems? I have my faith in the players.”
Alessandro Blessin at the press conference he takes a step back before starting tomorrow’s match against Lazio (12.30). “A Verona I didn’t see the attitude I wanted. We lost the game in the first half, we didn’t do as in previous games. In the second half we did things as we should have done, we started more aggression but we went 1-0 down because we didn’t have the right attitude and that doesn’t have to happen. Against one very strong team like Lazio, matches also as individual values, we must have the same attitude as before, except for the first half against Venice and Verona where we didn’t play well. Lazio must win to reach the European zone. We want to reach salvation, we must do what we know how to do “.
The main problem is still and always the attack. “You must always have strikers who score. Who doesn’t want them in the team? I am convinced in the quality of my players. Ekuban he scored in Venice and that could have been the spark to trust a young boy. Then he got it lucky. Little ones he trained and then had to stop. Ekuban he always trained well. A young person must have the confidence. There is hope. These things have conditioned us and also affect young children. However in Verona I was happy because we have created scoring chances, as well as the games before and this gives me hope. We need to improve and we are working every day “.
The technician then talks about set-up. “Is very important keep our structure. We have seen against Turin and against Verona that we can change the tactical aspect drawing from the bench. In Verona in the final we played with a 4-3-3. It is important to react and change the structure if necessary. It is always important to always have the chance to react to situations in the game that require a change of tactics and players “.
The state of mind however, the coach is always positive.“Absolutely not worried. I am optimistic because I have seen the performance of the team in the last few games. I also see the work on the field, I am optimistic and I’m not worried. We were able to dare to satisfy the fans to help us. We have quality to stay in A, I am convinced, however, it is clear that we need a 100% attitude in all matches. The boys know the direction we have to take to be able to save ourselves. “
Playing knowing the result of Cagliari an advantage or a disadvantage? “It’s always nice to play on Friday nights as well winand a match. Ouch an advantage. But that’s the situation but it is always better to look at ourselves and to win because only we can have our way. It is clear that tonight we will watch the game but for me the games are important, watching ourselves and scoring as many points as possible “.
The number one danger tomorrow is called Immobile. “I know he is an excellent striker, he has his qualities in the game in depth, he moves a lot. It will not be the task of a single player but of the compactness of the team to defend. Lazio have many quality players but the team will have to defend as a whole. so he won’t score tomorrow. “
