Sannino ready for Siena debut

New Siena Coach Giuseppe Sannino is looking forward to his debut against Torino in the Coppa Italia.

The Third Round of the competition continues today and it is the Tuscans' first official game of the season.

“This is an important match and therefore we want the victory, even if we know how much more crucial Serie A will be,” said Sannino.

“It will be a useful test to understand how the squad is doing after a month of pre-season work. I am very interested in their form.”

Siena were promoted from Serie B under Antonio Conte, who has now taken over at Juventus, while Sannino has never managed in the top flight.

“We all have to understand the nuances of moving from B to Serie A. It requires a calm head to realise we must battle day by day to achieve safety.”
