SALERNITANA DE SANCTIS- The Salernitana continues its preparation in view of the next seasonal commitments. Nicola’s men will debut tomorrow at 21 pm in the Italian Cup, in Salerno against Parma.
Salernitana, De Sanctis: “The Piatek slope is still alive”
The new sporting director of Salernitana, the former goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis, has given a long interview to the market portal: TMW. The Roman goalkeeper spoke about various topics including: the negotiations still in progress and the exits for the Corallini. Here are the words of the former Napoli goalkeeper:
“More than 20 million euros have been invested between card and commission costs and we have hired young players, with prospects and certain reliability for the present. Lovato, Pirola, Bonazzoli, Bradaric, Sambia, Botheim, Valencia and Kastanos are important elements, it is a job that is worth a lot but that we have not yet completed. The delay does not worry me, Salernitana has a goal and that is to consolidate the team within the Serie A championship. Over the years we would like to become a model to follow, like that of Atalanta or Villarreal ”.
“No, it could still be an attractive name for Salernitana ”.
“Let me make a general speech: on the defender, quality midfielder and striker we are waiting and we are taking our time. We find that some players who said no to us yesterday… tomorrow might say yes. The market is constantly evolving and we always have a ready alternative should we fail to reach our goal. I’ll give you an example. The Maupay deal, which you related very well, did not end at first. Then the English company contacted us to say that it was available to reopen the discussion but in the meantime we have taken Bonazzoli. In any case, we will close the market with 12-13 purchases, net of an outgoing market that can change the scenarios “.
Finally, on the attacking midfielder:
“This year’s base will be the 3-5-2, the player who will arrive substantially will know how to do the two phases and will give offensive push to the midfield. Djuricic and Yazici are numbers 10, not mezzals. These are reflections that we are having with the coach. At the moment Nicola has not told me about a back four, he would have no problems because he is very well prepared and is not a fundamentalist. Had they arrived, we could have done the 3-4-1-2 as happened last year with Verdi ”.
