Udinese boss Gabriele Cioffi presents Roma showdown

Andy Mattioli

Udinese manager Gabriele Cioffi previewed Sunday’s match with Roma.

In today’s press conference, Cioffi discussed what it will take for his team to keep up with Daniele De Rossi’s men.

“After losing to Inter we must get back up again with strength and awareness, if you think too much you always find an excuse not to do what you’re supposed to. For tomorrow we’re thinking that by giving 180% we could obtain a positive result.”

“I know Roma will come here and will have full respect of us as a valid opponent,” added Cioffi.

“With Mourinho Roma was more direct, had more defensive density, with De Rossi they dribble more, play with more courage with clear passing patterns.”

“I expect a relative turnover for Roma even though they have an important match in the Europa League against Milan and then a direct clash against Bologna. So yes, I expect them to rotate but not too much.”
