Udinese manager Andrea Sottil addressed the challenges in facing Jose Mourinho’s Roma in tomorrow’s fifth Serie A matchday.

“It’s a bit of a different team than what we are used to,” he told the media. However, it has  quality players who love playing for each other, so we must continue to be compact, short with distances and determined in hunting the ball.”

“Roma is a very strong team, which has been reinforced with high-level footballers in all areas of the pitch and we know what they’re capable of.”

“We have great respect, but we are at home and we must insist on our identity, to play our game.”

“We have prepared as always, we will play with great humility, aware that we will have to perform at 120%.”
