‘More points, less praise for Siena’

Claudio Terzi has called on Siena to return to a less expressive style of play if it means they start picking up points again.

The club lost to a last-minute goal at home to Inter on Sunday afternoon, which in turn confirmed their worst run of form since the season began. From the last three games played, the team have collected a draw against Atalanta sandwiched between defeats to Udinese and the aforementioned Nerazzurri.

It has prompted 27-year-old Terzi to declare that a return to a less attractive style of play may be on the cards, if it proves to be enough to reverse the Robur’s recent weaknesses.

“Two days on [from the Inter defeat] there is still much bitterness within us because we definitely did not deserve to lose. It took just one error that found us a bit too far away from our own goal that saw us lose the game.

“Unfortunately in the last three League matches we may have been praised for playing an expressive game, but have only collected a single point. It is time to get more points, even if that means less praise.”

Defender Terzi then turned his attention to next weekend’s opponents Bologna, a club he spent seven years at and made 125 appearances for before leaving in 2009 for Siena.

“I care a lot [about facing them] because I was captain of Bologna, because it was the city where I will live at the end of my career, because I left many good memories.

“Now I only think about the field, we will try to win because it would be very important in trying to achieve safety. They started badly but are now back on track and nearly won at Cagliari.

“It will be a really tough game.”
