Di Natale: Udinese can compete

Antonio Di Natale believes Udinese will be able to continue challenging the big boys this season – but only if they remain grounded.

The Stadio Friuli outfit are joint second in the table with Milan, just two points behind League leaders Juventus.

“The Scudetto is a big word for us,” the veteran striker noted. “But we are having a great season against great clubs and we can aim high.

“However, there will be trouble ahead if we don’t keep our feet on the ground. Coach Francesco Guidolin has created a masterpiece here.

“For the title itself, I think that Juventus have a bigger chance than Milan because they don’t have European games to worry about.

“However, Milan remain a great team.”

Di Natale continues to be an inspiration for the Bianconeri as he keeps on hitting the back of the net for the side.

“I’m working hard for my club and for any eventual call from Italy boss Cesare Prandelli,” the former Empoli man stated.

Di Natale, 34, is hoping for a shot at Euro 2012 even if he hasn’t played for Italy since the 2010 World Cup Finals.
