Siena are still only one point away from the safety zone despite a six-point penalty and President Massimo Mezzaroma believes “we are about to make history.”
The Tuscans have looked doomed to the drop since pre-season when they were docked six points as part of the betting scandal.
“I thank the players for every wonderful performance, as with each game I see we are about to make history,” the President told CalcioNews24.
They earned a 2-2 draw away to Genoa that keeps Siena within a point of the safety zone.
“We faced a Genoa side that was physically and psychologically solid, but we showed courage and never held back.
“Safety is no longer a mirage. We need to keep our concentration levels high and go to play every game as if it were a Cup Final, aware of the fact we have a complicated fixture list.”
