D'Aversa: 'Parma right Coppa attitude'

Roberto D’Aversa is confident Parma will not underestimate today’s Coppa Italia opponents Venezia. “We want to face every match the same way.”

Serie A teams are starting their Coppa campaign in the Third Round and Genoa already beat Imolese 4-1 last night.

“We are only missing Marcello Gazzola and Juraj Kucka, otherwise it’s a full squad for this first competitive game of the season,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“We want to get through to the next round and continue the build-up so we are in good shape for the Serie A opener. If we underestimate the opponent, then we could run into real difficulties, but we want to face every match the same way and I am sure we’ll have the right attitude.”

D’Aversa was asked about the transfer strategy so far and conceded there is more to be done.

“It was important that we kept hold of certain players like Alberto Grassi, Luigi Sepe and Roberto Inglese, but we are still a little short on numbers.”
