Maran calls for Catania 'sacrifice'

Catania boss Rolando Maran has asked his players to 'sacrifice' themselves ahead of the new Serie A season.

The Elefanti enjoyed a superb campaign last time out, finishing in eighth place. And the 49-year-old has admitted that to do that again, the team has to give its all.

“In ten days we'll be all together again,” he told reporters. “We will sweat and swear in order to build a new Catania.

“It's going to be a long and stressful road, but only with this attitude, and with a great spirit of sacrifice, can we grow.

“I expect this from the boys – we have to push from the very first session.”
