UDINE. When asked about his future at the end of the race, Cioffi asked for some time to enjoy the victory and savor the awareness of having created, together with all the others, a special environment. Not that much time has been left to him, with a brief statement Udinese reported that Ciotti had not renewed his contract, promising to continue to do well even without him.
Maybe a thank you could have been good for us, but it is clear that the situation had by now taken a very specific direction and that the Tuscan coach had entered the interests of other clubs with interesting topics for him.
There is talk of a probable landing in Verona, given that Tudor can return to Turkey, as well as the names of the pretenders to Ciotti’s succession. Until there is certain news it is advisable to stay at the window, even if the well-informed colleagues who follow the transfer market have already pitted some more or less plausible names.
Given that the same director Pierpaolo Marino could emigrate, it is clear that everything is in the hands of Gino Pozzo, struggling with the relegated Watford, but also able to deal with Udinese.
The championship has just ended, with an engaging final weekend, and we already have the distinct feeling that there will be plenty of news. Undoubtedly the way the season ended, with final results matured on a woolen thread, will remain in the annals, because usually the verdicts arrive much earlier.
Udinese also involved in the great cauldron in Salerno in a game that won over and that did not throw the local fans into despair just because Cagliari did not beat the already relegated Venezia. The bianconeri misled those who thought of a simple act of their presence at Arechi honoring the ethics of sport, as Cioffi immediately said in the last statement as Udinese coach.
