Gotti: 'Udinese must raise our level'

Udinese coach Luca Gotti believes his men have the ‘mentality’ to turn things around against Crotone tomorrow.

The Friuli arrive after three consecutive defeats against Lazio, Atalanta and Torino, but Gotti believes the players have the mental strength to turn things around against Crotone on Saturday.

“A player of a certain level has the mental strength that decides the quality and is able to always give the best of himself,” Gotti said at a press conference. “Both after three wins and three defeats on the bounce.

“I would like to think that we will be able to raise our level. This thing is called mentality.”

Gotti was asked if Crotone’s position can give them an advantage, as the pressure is decreasing on Serse Cosmi’s men.

“I don’t know if it can be an advantage for them or not,” he said. “Crotone have scored 13 goals in their last five games and have put all the opponents they met in difficulty.

“We have great respect for this Crotone. I think it can be an advantage for us to have 18 points more than them in the standings.”
