First day in biancoblù for the coach called to replace Cavina. Sunday debut at the sports hall against Naples
SASSARI. To give compactness to the group, to re-motivate some elements whose performance went like the phases of the moon and above all to try to get to the root of the defensive blackout problem that characterized this first part of the season. These are the main points of the “Bucchi plan”.
The Bolognese coach has just taken the place of Demis Cavina at the helm of Dinamo Banco di Sardegna, well aware of the critical issues that have led the biancoblù team to the evident involution of the last month. It goes without saying that immediately the priority is to archive the negative streak, which reached four consecutive defeats in the league: on Sunday the former coach of Milan, Brindisi and Rome will make his debut on the biancoblù bench, challenging Pino Sacripanti’s Gevi Napoli at PalaSerradimigni.
But in the medium term it will be necessary to reunite and reconnect the threads of a group that, after a brilliant start to the season, got lost along the way. Time certainly plays on the side of Banco, which after Sunday’s match will stop like the rest of Serie A due to the commitments of the national teams. In this regard, it is possible that Dinamo will ask Fip to have the new coach with them even during Italy’s commitments, considering that Bucchi is the first assistant to coach Meo Sachetti.
In this case the coach would have two whole weeks to give his input to the team and to prepare in the best way the terrible triptych scheduled for the resumption of the championship: in the space of 8 days, between 5 and 12 December, Dinamo will play three times away. First at the Segafredo Arena in the home of the Italian champions of Virtus Bologna; then in Kiev against Prometey in a decisive match for the passage of the Champions League round; finally in Venice at the home of a Reyer who, after a slow start, is finding performances and results in line with the roster and the investments made.
Then there will be the market strategies to be understood (and partly to be decided). For the moment, the company has greeted the play holder Clemmons, who in addition to the technical-tactical misunderstandings with the coach was enticed by the attractive economic offer of Turk Telekom Ankara and was in fact called out. Two days ago, the return of Filip Kruslin was announced, a deadly winger (but certainly not a play) who does not actually solve the current problem in the control room. The question is: will a role player arrive (Ruzzier? Luca Vitali?) Or is Dinamo okay? In this case the prospect is to divide the commercial of “one” between Logan and Gentile, offsetting the time taken from the two in the role of guard with Kruslin. Always in the hope that Battle continues to grow and does not continue in the reverse path.
Finally, the situation under the basket: Diop and Treier are already reliable and can only improve, but the problem remains the same. The owner center, Mekowulu, must be recovered as soon as possible – especially from the point of view of the reasons – or, for the good of all, it must be greeted as soon as possible. All bread for the teeth of an expert and prepared coach like Bucchi.
