To come to Sassari he had to renounce the next commitments of deputy Sacchetti in blue: “They were understanding, they understood that I had to stay here”
SASSARI. “I have been waiting for this call for many years.” Coach Piero Bucchi declares love for Dinamo, his new team. The 63-year-old Bolognese coach, Meo Sacchetti’s assistant in the national team, was presented to the press with the president of Banco di Sardegna, Stefano Sardara. Bucchi succeeds Demis Cavina, sacked two days ago, at the height of a crisis marked by four consecutive defeats in the league for the biancoblu. “I wanted to train Sassari, it is an important place, a demanding and competent environment, it deserves the comfort of the results – says Bucchi – I hope to give Banco the right satisfactions”.
The coach has not yet spoken to the team. “They are intelligent, smart, highly experienced guys – he says – they know that words count for little, what happens on the pitch counts, there I expect a reaction”. On the technical level “we have to start from defense, from a right mentality, from the group – explains the new coach – We only have three days before the next match, but I know who I’m dealing with”. Meanwhile, the company has brought Filip Kruslin back to biancoblu. “I’m happy with his presence – comments the coach – he’s a good player, last year he showed his worth”.
To say yes to Sassari, Bucchi has renounced the next commitments of the national team. “They were very understanding, I thank them, they understood my need to stay here – he says – if in the future it is possible and the club wants to, I remain available”. President Sardara spends the first words for Demis Cavina. “I thank him for the work he has done and for the approach to our project – he says – in sport the results count and there have not been any, he pays one for all”. For the Dinamo boss «it was right to give new enthusiasm and we called in a coach with experience and charisma». As for the team, “on the transfer market we will make evaluations with the coach – he closes – but our problem is not technical-tactical, but mental”. (HANDLE).
