Pescara ‘have kept promises’

Pescara’s President Daniele Sebastiani has declared himself happy with his club’s work in this transfer market and promises one more ‘important’ arrival.

The Delfini are preparing for their first Serie A campaign for 20 years, but began the summer by selling promising midfielder Marco Verratti to Paris Saint-Germain and losing a number of the young stars who earned their promotion last term. Even so, Sebastiani sees Pescara as suitably strengthened.

The southerners have brought in a number of new faces, from Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin and defenders Uros Cosic and Alessandro Crescenzi to midfielders Birkir Bjarnason, Vladimir Weiss [pictured] and Brazilian playmaker Lucas Chiaretti.

“As I think it has been noted, we are keeping all our promises, perhaps even achieving something more,” Sebastiani reflected.

“Now onwards we will focus only on a striker. We have ourselves in so many negotiations. Of course, competition is strong, but when the market enters the final stage situations unlock.

“I think I can say that at the right time Pescara will bring in an important player to focus their attack on.”
