Attilio Tesser is back on the Novara bench a month and a half after his dismissal and welcomes Udinese. “I want the team as enthusiastic as me.”
The Coach was sacked, but replacement Emiliano Mondonico lasted only six games before Tesser was recalled to the bench.
“I am reunited with the squad after 40 or so days away and don’t want to make any radical changes,” said the man who took them into Serie A for the first time in 55 years.
“I hope that against Udinese the team can be as enthusiastic as me. Udinese are the opponents who allow you the least options and in tactical terms the toughest side to face.
“This is why we must be very balanced as a unit.”
Andrea Caracciolo sits out a ban, so Giuseppe Mascara and Jeda could be the new attacking partnership.
