Nuytinck: 'Gotti plays football, unlike Tudor'

Udinese defender Bram Nuytinck reveals he ‘did not have a good relationship’ with former coach Igor Tudor, but Luca Gotti ‘wants us to play football.’

The centre-back did not pull punches when describing Tudor, who was sacked a year ago and is now an assistant manager to Andrea Pirlo at Juventus.

“Gotti is very different to Tudor, because he wants us to play football and is also a very calming presence in the locker room,” Nuytinck told ItaSportPress.

“Tudor had some qualities too. I did not have a good relationship with him, but that can happen in football. I am very happy now, we worked hard to be up to the standards of this club.

“Unfortunately, every year we want a mid-table finish, but we always end up fighting to avoid relegation. This season we finally have a good team and a good coach from the start, so want to achieve the finish we deserve.”
