Pioli fears Bologna lack focus

Stefano Pioli warns Bologna are not focused enough on today’s lunch-time match against local rivals Parma.

“I hope I did a lot of good work on the mentality of my players, because during this week there was nowhere near enough talk about this game,” said the Coach.

“I have a great deal of faith in my players. It’s going to be a balanced encounter and we have to prove we won’t be distracted by the praise from our performance against Napoli or the transfer gossip.”

The Rossoblu earned an impressive 1-1 draw at the Stadio San Paolo on Monday night, which was also controversial due to Napoli’s penalty.

They also signed Barcelona youngster Marti Riverola and brought in Fredrik Sorensen from Juventus, who could well play this afternoon.
