Mazzarri: “We mustn’t be afraid to dare more”
CAGLIARI. Cagliari tomorrow in Bologna to try to leave the last place. The problem is always that of bruises and the blanket too short. Pavoletti and Joao Pedro are confident in attack because Keita forfeits his tonsillitis: he didn’t train today. But in defense and in midfield Mazzarri knows that his men are numbered. Or in any case not in perfect condition. Godin, Caceres and Nandez leave, but they are not 100%. Dalbert stays at home, while Strootman is recovered and could start owner.
«I must also evaluate together with the doctor – said the Cagliari coach on the eve – at that point we will make the considerations perhaps for a job from the beginning, perhaps for those who can have less time. But I repeat, it is all to be seen ».
It could be the case of Nandez on the right. Cragno? “It is one of Cagliari’s certainties – Mazzarri said – I haven’t seen any mistakes, the goals were difficult to save, this time he was unable to perform the miracle”.
The set pieces? «We must be more and more careful, jump with the opponent and not wait for him. We are working on it, we hope to see progress. Even on punishments, you need to be more savvy to ensure the right distance ».
The dips in the finale? «When we are ahead we have to close it, I’m on this line of thought – he said – but in some races we were afraid of winning it. We are managing this situation both physically and mentally ».
With Roma a few steps forward. «I would like to see more possession and more speed in verticalization – he explained – while in defense we were compact and we are improving. Even if something was wrong there too. The important thing is to create solidity because this is also the basis for doing well when we start again ».
The referees? “More than anything else – concluded Mazzarri – I would like there to be a criterion of uniformity, when there are doubts, in going to see and evaluate individual cases”. (HANDLE).
