Guidolin and Arrigoni review result

Francesco Guidolin wants Udinese to “enjoy the moment,” but Daniele Arrigoni feels Cesena did not deserve to lose 4-1.

The Friulani’s victory means they remain just two points behind joint leaders Milan and Juventus. In fact, for a couple of hours they were top of the table.

“We must enjoy the moment,” said Coach Guidolin. “Today we did well in the opening minutes, then allowed Cesena to get their confidence back.

“We played a little too much for the crowd and that made me angry, so I gave the lads a talking to at half-time. After the break we went back to playing the way we know how and things improved.”

Cesena had equalised, but lost their way in the second half and Arrigoni felt it was not a fair result.

“We suffered a great deal in the opening minutes, then came out and towards the end of the first half had some good scoring opportunities,” said the Coach.

“Unfortunately, we allowed Udinese some goals and the second was particularly unlucky. Considering what we all saw on the field, a three-goal difference was simply not there.

“Having said that, it’s not as if we expected to pick up points in Udine. As for Eder, it’s not guaranteed he will leave for Sampdoria this month, as he won’t go if we cannot bring in reinforcements.”
