Bonato: 'Del Neri era begins'

Udinese director Nereo Bonato noted “the Gigi Del Neri era begins today” with a difficult trip to Juventus.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow the build-up and action as it happens on our LIVEBLOG.

“Udinese have our philosophy, we had a few problems, but with hard work and the quality in this squad we will emerge from them,” Bonato told Mediaset Premium.

“We are at the start of a new era, as those who made history over the last 10 years have moved on and we need to rediscover our balance, improve possession and other areas.”

The Friulani sacked Beppe Iachini before the break for international duty and Del Neri makes his debut this evening in Turin.

“Today the Del Neri era begins, a Coach who has always done well, knows the environment and we are confident he can take us far.

“We asked Del Neri for safety in Serie A, trying to improve performances and create a solid core to the team that we can build on in future. We hope to prove the real quality we’ve got in this team.”
