The new coach presents the key challenge of the championship: “They are very strong, but we want to realize our dream and that of our fans”
CAGLIARI. Short, dry answers. Alessandro Agostini leaves no room for frills in the press conference on the eve of Cagliari-Inter, the decisive match of the entire season. “The situation is very difficult _ the coach called a week ago to replace Mazzarri says immediately _ but the team is facing it mentally in the right way. Against Inter we need to put everything we have inside on the pitch.”
Cagliari in short, very concentrated and also loaded with the happy ending of the Salerno race. “On that occasion _ Ago emphasizes _ we showed that we had heart and character to sell. It was not easy to avoid defeat in such a difficult field, in front of 30 thousand opposing fans”.
Speaking of cheering, the situation is reversed in Cagliari, because Unipol Domus will be practically almost entirely on the side of the rossobuos. “This is certainly an important aspect _ Agostini points out _. The full stadium and the fans who dream of what we dream of can give us an important boost”.
And the personal emotions for the first as a coach in Cagliari? “For my part _ he admits _ I think it will be nice to go out on the pitch and find that audience again, that support that I had left at the end of my adventure as a footballer here and that have always remained in my heart.”
What match will it be? The rossoblù coach has no doubts. “For us a great game of sacrifice. Against a very strong opponent who will have great motivations to seek success. And I don’t think it matters much that we played in the Italian Cup on Wednesday. We will certainly be loaded on the pitch, for sure. not willing to give up “.
And it matters little to have the results of the others under your eyes when Cagliari-Inter starts. “We are really too focused on our game. We have to do our best by exploiting our qualities, which are many. We have worked a lot on the different solutions to use. The line-up? You will see it before the start …”
