Cosenza, the ace in the hole is Forte


By John

The ace in the hole to bring to the table when the championship resumes is Francesco Forte. The Roman striker only started training with his new teammates in the week just ended. The former Ascoli player responds to the first striker profile requested by Caserta during the summer. The coach had hinted at this need on various occasions and sporting director Roberto Gemmi satisfied him in the final hours of the transfer market when he surprisingly closed the deal for the striker after moving in the dark and simultaneously making some misdirection moves. A negotiation that experienced hours of anonymity in which the sporting director, after closing the Canotto operation, remained seated at the table with the same agents to carry out the surprise coup. Meanwhile, messages continued to be sent around, pushing in different directions. A move that surprised Bari. One of the many behind the scenes of the transfer market. The Neapolitan sporting director’s cunning allowed Caserta to find the striker he already had in Castellammare di Stabia and Benevento.
ORNow it will be Forte’s turn to show his importance on the pitch. The new number ten (he took over the number left vacant by Christian D’Urso) has the ability to reach the double-digit scoring mark, missing in the last two seasons. The “shark” scored six goals in the past, during which he arrived at Ascoli (he scored three goals with the Bianconeri) after having spent the first part of the championship at Benevento (with whom he scored as many goals). His scoring qualities are not in question and the future of the Wolves will pass through them. This year he has already scored in the Italian Cup, against Hellas Verona when he was still wearing the Marche shirt. At the “Marulla”, everyone is waiting to see his “fin” appear at any moment. Cosenza also clings to his goals to get back to surfing like in the first two games.
In the match against Sudtirol, however, he may not be on the field from the first minute but may find space during the match. Over the course of the week, Caserta’s intentions will become clearer in this regard. The coach needs to get back to moving the table and to do so he could turn from the first minute to those elements who offer greater guarantees from a physical point of view.
If Forte doesn’t start on Saturday then it will once again be Tutino’s turn to sprint ahead of everyone in the tactical plan of Melito Porto Salvo’s coach. The Neapolitan number nine has scored so far in all three home matches: from a penalty against Sassuolo and Ascoli and with a header against Modena.
Strong in any case, he will have no problems fitting into Caserta’s tactical mechanisms, a coach with whom he scored 17 goals in a single Serie B championship during his time at Juve Stabia. A loot that also remains his main business card. The Roman, who arrived on the banks of the Crati with the formula of the loan with right of redemption (he has a contract with Ascoli until 2026), wants to add another victim to his list: with Sudtirol he only took the field in one circumstance and left no mark.
