The statements made in the press conference by the Sassuolo coach, on the eve of the match against Bologna.
“We have to give continuity to Rome’s performance, the last 60 not the first 30”. So Alexei Dionysiswho spoke at the press conference on the eve of the match against Bologna, scheduled for Monday evening at the “Mapei Stadium”. “We know we’ll face a team that’s doing well. To date, the difference is the direct clash between us and them, we remember that well. But in the same way we’re on the same level. We have the chance to make up for it, knowing that we’ll have a team that he’s doing well, he has good players, he deserves what he’s doing,” said the coach Sassuolo.
BALANCE –“Only Cremonese did worse in the first third of the match? I don’t think there are any coincidences, after so many games this figure is significant and it means that sometimes the approach isn’t what we would like and others know they can make their fortunes in the approach. With reference to Lazio, I think there were merits from Lazio, but also some demerits from us. We can improve starting from tomorrow. Is there a points ceiling for eighth place? I don’t know, I’ve never thought about it “I’ve always thought about our path. We compare ourselves with who we were and want to become. We have direct clashes, like tomorrow’s, as well as a derby is an important match for position in the standings.”
THE OPPONENT –“Bologna deservedly won in the first leg despite the first important chance of the match was ours, but we missed it. We weren’t in a good period. We have changed, we have become more of a team. They too for sure, but it will be another match We want to do everything to put the first leg behind us. It seems to me that Bologna has its own identity and tries to recognize itself in every game without thinking about the opponent. They have a more structured and physical team than us, in some respects more racing. We are more qualitative in some departments. We will have to put them in difficulty. It is an important match for both, the championship is not over for us or for them. Motivations will make a big difference but not only that, two teams will face each other they have identities and qualities”.
TURNOVER – “I’d like to give everyone space, even if I think everyone has found it, some more, some less. If there are values after 33 games, the coach can’t fail in this. That’s the will, but the possibilities are limited. Let’s see what will happen in the choices. Infirmary situation? I hope that, apart from Pinamonti and Zortea who are disqualified, there won’t be any other defections. Berardi? He’s doing very well. In Rome we agreed that during the match we would confront each other because he was already from one game played and a stoppage of a few games. I didn’t want him to play 90 minutes. Then he has a technical, physical, character quality that allowed him to stay on the pitch for the whole match.”
HIS LAURIENT’ –“The boy arrived almost as an unknown and he integrated very well, it wasn’t easy. He did a lot, in some games the team clung to him and he took the team by the hand. He must be good and we must be good . In this week he approached in the right way. At a certain point it seemed that expectations had been satisfied, there was too much talk about it for me. He has the qualities to determine, he did, but it’s not enough. At certain moments a player can think that his individual qualities may be enough but that’s not the case. The teams started differently against him, they double him, it’s normal that it’s like this. We’ve seen it and this must be a reason for self-esteem and growth at the same time. because he can’t limit himself to what he’s done. And I’m convinced that in this period he could have done more, but he did his own. He will need it for the next games and for future growth”.
ADDIO KYRIAKOPOULOS –“A lot of fans still can’t swallow his farewell? We’re talking about a good player. As I said, motivations make the difference. I think both Sassuolo and Kyria made the right choice. make choices, for me he is a good player and the fact that he is playing as a starter in a team proves it. I don’t regret it because it is a delicate moment for us. I don’t know if it will be a farewell, I appreciate him a lot as a boy and as a footballer. he left on loan but there are moments in which to make choices and I think the right choices have been made,” concluded Dionisi.
