The new blue dg: in the derby the support of the Panigati fans, patron of the Academy, will be needed: salvation is our horizon
A delicate derby on Sunday at Fortunati. Pavia is looking for a victory that has been missing since September 26, three points to find some peace of mind on and off the pitch. But even the penultimate Academy is in desperate need to move the ranking.
Pavia, three points and then the market
«The goal can only be the victory and then in a short time complete the staff at the reopening of the market (1 December) with a further sacrifice by the president Nucera – underlines the new blue general manager Antonio Dieni -. A rose that needs grafts both numerically and qualitatively. Thanks to those who believe in this club, from the president to the fans who are close to us and deserve other categories and who, among other things, have given us the opportunity to use the “Ac Pavia 1911 brand, which they own. It is clear – continues Dieni – that results are needed starting from Sunday’s derby against a team to which I am linked by past relationships, in particular with the red and white patron Panigati with whom I collaborated in the management of the youth sector ».
Panigati, fan and opponent
An ex of the derby is also the president of the Academy, Ezio Panigati. «I was a councilor of Pavia at the time of the Zanchi family and I’m not saying it out of rhetoric – explains Panigati – on Sunday I will face the derby as a fan of Pavia, but also as an opponent, as owner of the Pavese Academy. In the past I had sought an agreement with Pavia, the project included a youth academy alongside the first blue team, but it did not materialize. This season, we started with ambitions, believing that we have set up a competitive squad, but the names are not always needed in these leagues and some players have turned out to be below expectations, so much so that we have already excluded them from the staff. Now our goal remains the same as always: the permanence in the category and the enhancement of young people. The latest example that makes us proud is that of Galazzi, who made his debut in Serie A with Venezia and now plays on loan in Serie C at Triestina ». –
