Attilio Tesser has confidence Novara can turn their season around with Parma. “We need fiery hearts and cold tempers.”
The newly-promoted side have just one win this term, against Inter in September, and dropped into the relegation zone.
“My sensations remain positive, those of a group that is hungry for success. We’ve got to express ourselves without fear, be more gritty, but with clear heads. We need fiery hearts and cold tempers,” said the Coach.
“Parma have Jonathan Biabiany doing great things on the right flank, plus Sebastian Giovinco and Graziano Pellè in attack. Daniele Galloppa debuted with me in both Serie B and A.
“I have already decided 10 members of the starting XI, but I only have one doubt over the midfield position for Rigoni. He can either be trequartista or internal midfield,” continued Tesser.
“We are missing Samir Ujkani, Andrea Lisuzzo, Massimo Paci, Taka Morimoto and the suspended Riccardo Meggiorini. Carlalberto Ludi will be on the bench, but he’s doing well. Samir is better, but we still have to work out how his protective face mask works with the stadium lights.”
Goalkeeper Ujkani has been out of action since breaking his jaw and losing four teeth in an accidental collision with teammate Michael Morganella.
