Exempted from Vicenza at the beginning of the season, his contract is about to expire. His profile would be a guarantee to start again in C aiming high again
PORDENONE. Between contact and contract there is an “r” that makes all the difference in the world, but that Pordenone, in the person of the manager of the technical area Matteo Lovisa and the coach Domenico Di Carlo have heard to talk about a possible landing in neroverde starting next summer is something more than a simple indiscretion. And the thing cannot fail to cause a sensation considering the stature of the character and the fact that, barring unlikely twists, Pordenone will play in Serie C next season.
The fact that the company has begun to look around only weakens Bruno Tedino’s position. President Lovisa has always spent good words towards him, it is clear that with the advent of him the team has grown in terms of the game but the results and the last place in the standings condemn him.
Di Carlo, who reached the highest peak of his career with Sampdoria when he even played the Champions League preliminaries lost to Werdere Bremen, certainly represents an ambitious profile for the category. In C he worked at the beginning of his coaching career at Mantova (he even took him from C2 to the final of the play-offs to go up to Serie A between 2003 and 2006), and at Vicenza (he was hired in 2019), or the team with which as a footballer, with Francesco Guidolin on the bench, he achieved the best results as a footballer: winning the Italian Cup and the Cup Winners’ Cup semifinal with Chelsea. A choice from the heart, therefore, rather than a professional one.
And with Vicenza he won the championship, however, conditioned by the first wave of Covid. With the red and white club, which replaced him after five days with Brocchi, he has his contract expiring in June and therefore from 1 July he will be free.
Focusing on Di Carlo would be an important signal for the square: it would mean having the ambition to play for the top ranking and from a tactical point of view a sort of continuity: the module most used by the Cassino coach is the 4-3-1 -2, the one with which Tesser flew the neroverdi for two and a half years.
The contact, therefore, took place, now we need to talk about a contract. Di Carlo seems to be inclined to ask for a biennial and will want to bring with him two members of his staff, a deputy and an athletic trainer. In this regard, the fact that last week Pordenone resolved in the blink of an eye the contract with Salvatore Sciuto, which joined Corini in Brescia, makes us reflect. Perhaps the negotiation is further ahead than one imagines, or it is a simple coincidence. Certainly, pending the end of this sad championship, the future at Pordenone has already begun.
