Strama: 'Ugly Udinese defeat'

Andrea Stramaccioni told Udinese they “need to change tack fast” after a humiliating defeat to Palermo.

The Friulani were already thrown into a training retreat as punishment for a 1-0 midweek loss to Parma, but fell 3-1 on home turf today.

“I compliment Achraf Lazaar, because he scored a sensational goal that immediately allowed Palermo to focus on the counter-attack,” the Coach said on Rai Sport.

“It’s an ugly defeat and we are alternating decent performances with disastrous days, so that is something we need to reflect on.

“We had been doing well until Parma, so if we’ve unconsciously relaxed then we need to change tack fast.

"I understand the fans have every right to protest and express their disappointment, but it isn't helping us."
