Giuseppe Sannino tells Siena they can cause an upset against Udinese today. “If we go out there with the belief we can do it, then anything can happen.”
The Tuscans need points to be sure of avoiding a slide back towards the drop zone, but the Friulani hope to take advantage of Lazio’s defeat to Parma last night and push for a Champions League spot.
“Even if we picked up a precious point away to Chievo, we cannot relax or think we’ve resolved all our problems,” said the Coach.
“I don’t know how, I don’t know where, but we must earn those points that mathematically secure our Serie A safety.
“When we have been faced with a crossroads, we always paid a price. This season Siena always have to be on their toes to get the right performance and work as a unit.
“We are playing against a great Udinese side who have been doing so well for years. The club is remarkable in how it continually finds new talents and sells them off, a policy that is bearing fruit.
“Siena must be wary of their pace, as Antonio Di Natale, Giampiero Pinzi, Kwadwo Asamoah, Michele Pazienza and the others know how to cause problems, but at the same time they will encounter a Siena side that can trouble them.
“Francesco Guidolin is a great Coach who is not bogged down in a single tactical system,” continued Sannino.
“Udinese’s strength is that they create density in midfield and push hard down the wings with Di Natale an exceptional finisher.”
