Gotti: 'Udinese have potential'

Udinese coach Luca Gotti says there “is a lot of potential” in his side, but if they don’t turn it into points “then there is only talk, as they face Brescia.

The Zebrette travel to Brescia to face the struggling side at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti on Sunday, with kick off at 14:00 GMT. You can read the match preview here.

Udinese have lost their last three consecutive games, but Gotti believes there is more to his side than they are currently showing.

“There is a lot of potential here, but if we don’t turn it into points, then there is only talk,” said Gotti in his press conference.

“If we want to go higher, we need to do more.”

Brescia recently sacked Eugenio Corini for the second time this season and installed Diego Lopez as coach.

“In the first game Brescia put us in difficulty, they are an organised squad, they will be determined.

“I know Diego Lopez well, he will not have had time to mould a system in his image yet, but you will see his work at hand.

“He will make them united and will give them a sense of purpose.”

Gotti teased about potentially using Argentine Rodrigo De Paul as a second striker against the Rondinelle.

“It could be a solution. A balanced team creates situations that lead various players towards the opposition’s goal.

“As a coach I have to ensure as much as possible that the balance is correct. The morale, despite the three consecutive defeats, seems to be positive.”
