EMPOLI ZANETTI – Empoli continues its retirement in view of the athletic preparation for the start of next season. The Tuscan DS is attentive to the market and follows many gems to deliver a competitive team to Paolo Zanetti.
Empoli, Zanetti: “Destro is a great player, we have many talents”
The new Empoli coach, Paolo Zanetti, gave a long interview a la Gazzetta dello Sport, where he talked about various topics including: young people in the Tuscan squad and various seasonal goals. Here are the words of the former Venezia coach:
On talented young people:
” In agreement with the director Accardi, we have added high-level youngsters to the team, such as Satriano or De Winter. Those of the house I will mention two, Baldanzi and Fazzini. It is rewarding for a technician not only to train but to contribute to the growth of potential champions with players already well-established like Destro, who has great desire. Now we need a couple of points with different characteristics and maybe a mezzala but the team is 80% made, Accardi did a great job “.
The choice to coach Empoli:
“For many reasons: the technical project, as mentioned, the feeling with the ds, the square where I played for three seasons. So I know the city well and the philosophy of the club that goes with mine. That is to achieve the result through a game idea that can enhance the players and entertain. From this point of view it is a very high level club. I am in love with talent, it is the basis of my idea of football. And here there are talents that then promptly explode. The Empoli nursery is the best in Italy with that of Atalanta ”.
The strength of the individual:
“Anyone in particular that I wanted to train? Yes, Nedim Bajrami. And the first name I mentioned in the chat with the director, asking to keep it. I have always considered him very dangerous, every day I see his potential. He knows how to do everything: construction, assists, goals and in various areas of the pitch. But Empoli has many interesting ones, like, Viti ”.
