The midfielder would like to be ready for a starting shirt with Frosinone after having played two of the 5 matches managed by Tedino without ever finishing them
PORDENONE. He played two of the five games in the management of Bruno Tedino. When he took the field, he did it from the start, but was replaced during the match. He has experienced the last two challenges on the bench.
Now he is ready to return as the owner. At the Stirpe, on Saturday, Jacopo Petriccione will have a chance again.
The gradisca midfielder, born in 1995, trained hard and convinced the coach to field him from the 1st minute in a delicate match like the one against Frosinone.
The director, barring surprises, will always be Pasa and he will be free to create as a mezzala, exactly as he did in Pisa, during his best match in the green and black jersey.
On this occasion he will celebrate his hundredth appearance in Serie B: he will have to prove that he is the player for whom he was hired.
Yes, because from the most experienced and best quality players, it is legitimate to expect something more.
This is what President Lovisa wished a few days ago. The Friulian midfielder, so far, has not been able to affect. Arrived on loan from Crotone in mid-August, he had already been thrown into the fray in the match against Perugia.
Having come off the bench a few days after his arrival, in a department with two midfielders and at a disadvantage, he had understandably gone into trouble.
So it was proposed low top of the three-way line with Spal, but it was Pordenone’s worst performance of the Lovisa era (5-0 outnumbered, match costing Paci the place).
In the management of Rastelli Petriccione played four out of six matches from 1 ‘but was unable to take over the team. The alibis he has are made of iron, because there were no conditions to perform at their best.
But with Tedino the music has changed and the player is now called to take on his responsibilities, to get back on display and at least try to get closer to the levels of Lecce.
In Salento, with Liverani on the bench, as a playmaker and as a midfielder in a three-man midfield, he had managed to earn the nickname of “Modriccione” by virtue of his excellent performances and looks and movements similar to the Croatian ace Luka Modric, champion of Real Madrid, Ballon d’Or in 2018 with which the neroverde midfielder shares the position in the middle of the field in this specific case.
Pordenone does not need to go that far: it can however put the attackers in a position to be incisive, who at times have suffered from the lack of clean balls.
He does not lack football intelligence and not even the feet to do it. If he is in the midst of the maneuver as in Pisa, in Frosinone the lizards can think of the blow that could turn their championship around. His could change too, not just that of the team. He will also celebrate the triple number of appearances in Serie B, can he ever do it with a negative performance?
