Udinese, Sottil: “Muscle discomfort for Udogie”

At the end of the match between Udinese and Lecce, the coach of the Friulians, Andrea Sottil, spoke to Dazn about the surprise absence of Udogie and the team’s performance. Below, here are the words of the former Ascoli coach:

On the match:

Game divided in two. The first half where, even if we did not immediately despite the Lecce goalposts, we defended well. In the action of the goal we had the ball and we were not precise in the bank. Then after a cross inside, Ebosse was unlucky and then the ball stayed there and Colombo scored. It is clear that the first half we were not very precise, not very reactive but we were in the game. But in my opinion the team has shown that they have personality, courage and awareness of what they want to do. The second half was a crescendo, we drew and we had the balls to win it. The episodes are not favorable but I liked the spirit of keeping order with the three points. Too bad, however, in this category, especially at the moment, they are all battles. Victory is not coming but I’m happy with what I saw in the second half and the entry of Success has made us go up more and be present in midfield ”.

On Udogie’s condition:

Udogie is a few weeks old, like so many footballers, he is struggling with a muscle discomfort that has worsened and today he could not participate in the match. He will be evaluated in depth this week. Let’s see if we can recover it for La Spezia ”.

On missed wins:

There are some arguments to be made. This team started in a formidable way, the points were distributed unfairly on the course. Now these ties may all seem like negative results but they are not. Then, I have to see the performance of my team and every time we have drawn, I start with Lazio, we have had sensational opportunities. As with Toro and also in Cremona as well as today. In these games we defended well and didn’t give much. What can I impute to mine? Anything. They work hard in the week. I have forwards and midfielders who are hungry to score when they kick. The ball does not go in but I cannot say that the forwards do not train, are not precise or are not hungry to score. When there is performance, when it is created, I am always happy. Then in the last meters you need mental clarity. The obsession with victory must never take over and think that we have to score goals for every action. We have to be calm and play then the goal will come. Continue along this path because this team is making a great journey ”.
