Nicola reveals Udinese flu epidemic

Davide Nicola revealed Udinese were dealing with a flu epidemic during their 1-0 defeat to Inter. “We did what we could.”

The Friulani were eventually beaten by a Mauro Icardi penalty after VAR showed Seko Fofana’s handling offence.

“The attitude in the first half was part of the plan, as I’ve only been here for four games,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

Ankle damage for Samir

Udinese defender Samir could be out for some time after sustaining ankle ligament damage, but Kevin Lasagna has recovered.

The Friulani released a statement from their medical staff giving updates on the various injured players.

Samir was stretchered off during Saturday’s victory over Roma after an awkward fall and tests have now confirmed there is a right ankle sprain with ligament damage.

No surgery seems to be on the cards, but it’s not clear how long he’ll be out for.

For better and for worse

Italy have shown both the strengths and the weaknesses of Roberto Mancini during his tenure so far, says Gaby McKay.

For a Coach with such an impressive CV, Roberto Mancini is still something of a divisive figure for football fans. Mancio won three Scudetti with Inter - albeit the first was awarded in the Calciopoli scandal - brought Manchester City their first league title in 44 years, and won the Coppa Italia with both Fiorentina and Lazio under trying circumstances.

Lasagna stunned by Italy debut

Udinese striker Kevin Lasagna “almost didn’t believe it” when making his Italy debut against Poland, but reveals his parents missed it.

He was a late addition to the Nations League squad against Poland and chosen to come off the bench rather than Ciro Immobile.

It proved a decisive debut, as his flick on from a corner allowed Cristiano Biraghi to score the last-gasp winner.

“I felt indescribable emotion when the Coach called me over to come on. I was already enthusiastic just about being in the squad,” he told Udinese TV.

Italy call Lasagna

Italy CT Roberto Mancini has called-up Udinese’s Kevin Lasagna to replace the injured Simone Zaza.

The Torino striker felt a calf injury in training yesterday, and it was announced this morning that he had pulled out of the squad.

This afternoon the Azzurri have called his replacement, with Lasagna afforded the chance to get his first cap.

The 26-year-old scored 14 goals in 32 games for the Zebrette last season, but so far this term he’s found the back of the net only once.

“My team played very well, we remained solid and hit them on the break, making the most of our positioning,” the Spanish Coach said in his Press conference.
