“I take full responsibility for our elimination against Slovan Liberec,” said the Coach of that play-off 4-2 aggregate exit.
“We have to work well to develop our play. I don’t think it can just be a problem to do with the tactical system.
“Against Parma we must be concentrated and careful. I am not worried about Antonio Di Natale, while Luis Muriel is in great shape. Nico Lopez is slowly settling into the squad.”
Giampiero Pinzi and Maurizio Domizzi are out of action, while goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic is still sidelined by a shoulder injury.
Udinese squad for Parma: Benussi, Kelava, Scuffet; Basta, Bubnjic, Danilo, Gabriel Silva, Heurtaux, Naldo, Widmer; Allan, Badu, Fernandes, Jadson, Lazzari, Pereyra, Zielinski; Di Natale, Maicosuel, Muriel, Nico Lopez
