Francesco Guidolin feels “this was the first game we got completely wrong” after Udinese’s 3-0 defeat to Lazio.
“This was the first game we got completely wrong in terms of performance and approach, so I hope it was just a one-off,” said the Coach.
“If we play like this then we’re going nowhere. In terms of spirit and mentality it just wasn’t us out there, not like in the other matches.
“We have got a lot of injuries this year and Andrea Coda had a thigh problem too, but this mustn’t be an alibi. Our objective is safety, as we have been saying since the start of the season. Our project is very clear.”
Guidolin insisted the Friulani had no other idea in mind and have now been eliminated from both the Champions League and Europa League.
“The preliminary round and everything we achieved in previous seasons are all behind us now. We know the plans of the club and if there are lads who stand out then they are likely to be sold, but we can do well anyway.”
