The Hellas coach: “There is no common sense but no excuses, those who deserve it will play at Marassi”
Igor Tudor presents the next Verona match at a press conference on Saturday at 8.45 pm on the Genoa field. These are the statements of the Hellas coach.
“Third game in a week? I don’t know how we are, let’s see today’s training. It’s crazy, I have to congratulate those who have drawn up this program. After the match with Roma we played in Salerno, and after two days Let’s go to Genoa. You have to have some common sense. There must be the same opportunities for all the teams. Having said that, I want to reiterate that we have no excuses, we don’t have to worry about that. There is another battle to be fought. another important match, against a strong team like Genoa. They are a good team, with experienced and quality players. They made a good draw away from home, playing there is always difficult. I expect a good Verona, who does things simple, right things.
Let’s see how the kids are and decide who to play. With the five changes, many times those who come off the bench will be decisive. I don’t want people who come in, it’s twenty minutes and they’re tired. For the way we play, with the changes you have to earn: I talked about this with the boys. Kalinic? We have known each other for a long time with Nikola. The qualities are there, in recent years, playing little, maybe he has lost some strength in his legs, he doesn’t have the shot he had five or six years ago. But he is a class player, he is in the right position. I’m happy to have him, but I treat everyone the same: who deserves to play, sometimes someone has to stay out.
I don’t have to think I have very little time to train. The more you think about it, the more nervous you get. I accepted it as we already knew: there is this tight schedule, there is to bring out the best and not put too many things on the plate, because otherwise it becomes a mess. I am happy with these two games. I’m sure we’ll have a good race. “
Salerno? After reviewing it I am still convinced that they did not create anything. They scored the two goals. We had many chances, we scored two goals: it was a three-point game, but sometimes that’s what football is. We lacked a bit of freshness, if we had had it we would have taken points home more easily.
Hongla and not Tameze? A technical choice. They are quite similar players. I don’t see big differences. Then I see them in training and I choose based on that. Hongla had a good match: he didn’t play much this year, he’s a guy with perspective. It’s not easy to get to a new league, he needs to find some adaptation, but I’m happy to have him, he’s a strong player.
Veloso? He is a key player for this team, in recent years he has always been a leader, a point of reference. I’m happy he started racing again for a couple of days, I think he will be with us shortly. “
The defence? I am happy, even if all these goals have been conceded, because they are the result of individual mistakes, I have not seen anything in particular that I did not like. I see them beautiful loaded and attentive, someone surprised me positively, I did not think it was so strong. It’s not so much to attack high, you have to work on the ability to wait low and suffer “.
Ilic e Caprari? I can only speak highly of them. They are quality players, it’s up to them to grow further, working, and let us take away some satisfactions “.
