Cosmi believes in Lecce

Serse Cosmi takes on Palermo, the team he managed for a month last season, and feels Lecce can fight back to avoid relegation.

“Can we notch up five wins in the next 11 matches? It would be something extraordinary, but we are capable of it. I believe we can do it,” said the Coach.

“Palermo have players of real quality, although obviously we’re pleased they have Fabrizio Miccoli suspended, as he is one of the few Italians who can change a game single-handed.

“The pressure is on them to win, but we are in the same boat. I expect a similar performance to the one against Genoa, another team that started the campaign with very different expectations and did not think it would be in this position.

“Unfortunately we are coming off a defeat to Milan, so have to wipe it from our minds and begin again.”
