Mangia takes game to Lazio

Devis Mangia does not agree with those who say Palermo only perform on home turf. “We're going to attack Lazio.”

The Rosanero have so far beaten Inter and Cagliari in goal-packed thrillers at the Stadio Barbera only to fall 1-0 away to Atalanta.

“I don't think there's any particular reason for the different performances home and away,” said the Coach who took over 10 days before the season started.

“Of course, a lot depends on the lads and their mentality when they step on to the field, but let us not forget our opponents are there too.

“Everyone has a very clear objective in mind, which is to do well at Lazio and attack them. I firmly believe we can return from the Olimpico with a positive result. I won't be happy with a draw, either.

“I couldn't choose who is more dangerous between Hernanes, Miroslav Klose and Djibril Cissè. They are three great players, but above all have a team that puts them in the condition to show their full potential.”

Andrea Mantovani has had to pull out of the trip due to a flu virus.
