Semplici: 'SPAL still motivated'

Leonardo Semplici assures SPAL still have something to play for against Udinese, but won’t discuss his future. “I’m very happy in Ferrara.”

The Biancazzurri are mathematically safe with 42 points and travel to Udine tomorrow, to face a side still battling against relegation.

“Even though we are safe, we still have something to play for,” the tactician said in his Press Conference.

“We want to get as many points as possible and finish as high up the table as we can. It will be a tough game, but we are focused on doing well.

“We’ll hopefully be able to put out our strongest possible XI, as Jasmin Kurtic has recovered, but Simone Missiroli and Felipe aren’t available.

“I still haven’t decided who will start in goal, whether it will be Emiliano Viviano or Alfred Gomis.”

The 51-year-old technician has been linked with the Lazio job in recent weeks, if Simone Inzaghi leaves.

“I’m not thinking about my future now. I’m only focused on playing these last two matches of the season. I don’t listen to the rumours and I will talk with the club after the game with Milan next week.

“I repeat, I am very happy in Ferrara.”
