The coach has signed until June 2022 with the option of a multi-year renewal
PORDENONE. It is a return to the past, in some respects: the protagonist has already coached the team, albeit in two different brackets.
The choice, however, is projected towards the future, because it is from him that Mauro Lovisa wanted to start again to center salvation and then open a desired cycle. Bruno Tedino’s third adventure on the neroverde bench has officially begun.
The Pordenone has decided to rely on him, Pordenone by adoption, to move up the rankings and obtain the third salvation in a row in Serie B. The coach, born in 1964, has signed a contract until June 2022 (with the option of multi-year renewal) .
With him the deputy Carlo Marchetto (already with the lizards from 2015 to 2017) and the technical collaborator Alcide Di Salvatore, formerly on the staff in Palermo, Teramo and Virtus Entella.
His press-only presentation is scheduled for Tuesday 19 October at 11 at De Marchi. His debut is scheduled for Sunday on the field of leaders Pisa.
It was with the iconic image of the coach under the curve of the green-and-black fans at the Garibaldi Arena that the club announced its return. On 22 May 2016, after losing 3-0 game-1 of the Lega Pro play-off semifinal with Gattuso’s team, Tedino ran under the cloister of Pordenone supporters to cheer them up and convince them that a comeback was possible.
He made a gesture of rolling up his sleeves, saying he would work hard to reverse the situation. Tedino finds in front of him a scenario similar to then: once again he has to plan a comeback.
The team is in last position, has returned from seven defeats and a draw, is still dry and psychologically grounded. He must give the players energy and enthusiasm but also game ideas, which were lacking in previous management.
On his side, he has the advantage of knowing the club, the environment and the players. He will have little time available, but he will do everything to bridge the gap with rivals and bring the club out of the shallows of the low ranking.
Tedino was sacked last season from Virtus Entella after eight days. This time, however, after eight rounds he enters the race. An anomalous situation for him: the last time he replaced a colleague was in the 2008-2009 tournament, when he took over the City of Jesolo in Serie D from Diego Zanin after his experience in C2 at Sangiovannese.
Since then he has always worked, staying for five years with the Venetians (who then merged with Sandonà in 2010) and subsequently joining the FIGC team in 2013 as a coach for the Under 16 and Under 17 national teams.
The rest is recent history: the return to Pordenone (2015-2017) in Serie C after having coached him in the two-year period 1999-2001, then jumping to B in Palermo (2017-2018 and 2018-2019), the experience in Lega Pro in Teramo (2019-2020) and the parenthesis between the cadets with Entella (2020-2021).
He comes from four exemptions in a row (one with Palermo while he occupied second place in B) and for this reason he has a great desire to redeem himself: a state of mind that he can certainly transmit to the team. It will debut in Pisa, as mentioned. Curiosity has it that his last match won was with the Nerazzurri.
The affirmation dates back to 27 October 2020, when he led Entella: 3-1 in Chiavari in the third round of the Italian Cup. Almost a year has passed. Repeating would be the best for him and Pordenone.
