Cosmi: 'Bertolacci can fit into Milan'

Coach Serse Cosmi praises Milan's Andrea Bertolacci, his former pupil: 'He still has to find his feet, but he can cover several roles'.

The Serie B side Trapani Coach had the 24-year-old at Lecce, and was able to comment on the player's career for La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“That year at Lecce, Bertolacci was often injured,” he said.

“But his skills were obvious. I followed him at Genoa and I wasn't surprised to see him playing further back in the field: he has great technical and tactical abilities.

Cagliari consider Zola alternatives

Cagliari are considering several different alternatives if they sack Gianfranco Zola, including David Suazo.

According to Sky Sport Italia, club President Tommaso Giulini informed Zola that he is considering other options.

Some fans have called for the return of Zdenek Zeman, who was sacked on December 23 to make way for Zola.

That seems the most likely outcome, especially as he is still being paid his wages.

Other Coaches up for the job include Delio Rossi, Serse Cosmi and Claudio Ranieri.

‘Roma are at Juve’s level’

Serse Cosmi believes Roma must put yesterday’s sense of injustice behind them and start again with the belief they are on Juventus’ level.

The Giallorossi have been left feeling aggrieved by a handful of refereeing decisions in defeat to their title rivals, but have had backing from one experienced Serie A technician.

“The two teams have respected each other, perhaps at the expense of quality because the tension has played a dominant role,” Cosmi has reflected to Calcionews24 today.

Cosmi: Napoli lack hunger

Serse Cosmi has defended Rafa Benitez and believes Napoli’s issues may lie in a lack of competitive hunger.

The Partenopei and their tactician have come under early season fire for a premature exit from the Champions League and then defeat to Chievo in their first home match of the Serie A season.

For one Serie A and Serie B regular tactician, putting the blame on the bench is not accurate.

“Do not blame him,” former Udinese, Lecce and Palermo boss Cosmi has commented in today’s edition of Il Mattino.
