On the eve of the derby against Fiorentina, the coach closes the door on possible attempts from Turkey: “Musa won’t move even if a suitable offer arrives. Watch out for Viola, press high and he won’t let you play”
“Even if a suitable offer arrives, well, Musa Barrow won’t move from here. He stays here”. Two days before the Apennine derby on Sunday (there will be 1,800 Bologna fans at the Franchi stadium), Thiago Motta definitively closes a market that will end in Turkey on 8 February: Galatasaray want Barrow but the negotiation will go ahead anyway, the Gambian will not will move. “Are our players talking about Europe – continued the Bologna coach -? Doesn’t change anything we’ve done up to now: we keep our feet on the ground and stay focused on doing the usual, trying to improve every day. Kyriakopoulos? He’s an example. because he strongly wanted to come to us, also giving up something from an economic point of view. I see him more as a full-back but it is clear that he can also stand taller: the fact that he talked about Europe doesn’t bother me, it’s okay to have ambitious players, but let’s stay as I said with our feet on the ground”.
Arna still out
Of the injured (Arnautovic, Medel, De Silvestri, Bonifazi and Sansone) none returns. Against Viola there will still be Zirkzee at the center of the attack. “Fiorentina are a very good team, they don’t let you play, they press high and hard, we have to be careful to play fast, try to attack deep. Who is the favorite for eighth place? I don’t see a favorite today, I don’t look at the beyond our next match. It all depends on many things. What did I like most in these last 10 matches in which we scored 19 points? Continuity in the work done, we worked very well every day: the matches are a summary of the one done during the week. We must have this need, always improve: our challenge is to always improve”.
