Siena boss Serse Cosmi has warned his side against the danger posed by Udinese’s Antonio Di Natale. “He’s as incisive as Zlatan Ibrahimovic.”
The two teams will meet in Tuscany this weekend and Cosmi is keen to collect a win against one of his former clubs.
“I want to beat them on Sunday,” he stated. “However, it will be some achievement because Udinese have a strong defence and Di Natale.
“The latter is very difficult to control and there is nobody better than him in Italy. He’s as incisive to his team as Ibrahimovic is to his.”
Siena, penalised as part of the betting probe, are bottom of the table on minus five points after collecting just one draw so far this term.
Di Natale, 34, has yet to score this season but he has grabbed 80 League goals over the last three seasons.
