Hellas Verona coach Igor Tudor was confident of his team’s chances in today’s match against Lazio.
Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via TuttoMercatoWeb) yesterday, the Croatian coach first commented on the strengths of the Biancocelesti and his expectations of his squad.
The game will be a challenge against a team of great quality that has important players and a good coach.
Compared to recent years, they have changed coach and system, but they still create dangers in every game situation.
However, we have prepared for the match well, we will exploit our qualities to play until the end. I expect a serious game from my players.
I think I have a good squad available, with good elements to propose different game solutions.
Football with five substitutions has changed, whoever comes on can affect things a lot, and this aspect helps a coach in their choices.
All my guys must always be ready and know that they are all important. In this sense I’ve always had good responses from those who have come off the bench.
Hellas Verona have had a slow start to the season under Tudor, currently sitting in 15th place with eight points.
The Gialloblu have won twice, drawn twice and lost four times, putting them only two points ahead of relegation candidates Cagliari.
Lazio, on the other hand, have started to find their footing a little after an inconsistent start to the campaign.
The Roman club sit fifth in the league table, one point behind intercity rivals Roma.
