Walter Zenga felt Cagliari picked up ‘a good point’ against Bologna, after having to ‘improvise’ due to ‘many injuries’ and expired contracts.
Cagliari travelled to Bologna without Robin Olsen and Fabrizio Cacciatore, who couldn’t agree on an extension until August, but coach Zenga managed to improvise and pick up a point.
“It’s life, everyone decides as they see fit. They discussed and decided on different things,” Zenga told Sky Sport Italia. “I thank them for what they have given me in this period.
“Cacciatore would have started the game today, but it’s useless to dwell on that.”
Musa Barrow gave the home side the lead in the first half, before Giovanni Simeone equalised and brought home a point after the break.
Zenga thanked Fabio Pisacane and Charalampos Lykogiannis, who he felt sacrificed themselves for the Casteddu coming off the bench.
“We started the game well, we showed character,” he said. “We already had many injuries and I want to thank Pisacane for his commitment and Lykogiannis for playing in a position he’s not used to.
“We claimed a good point, playing with an improvised defence. It’s a point that boosts our morale.”
