Cosenza, with Palermo a fundamental crossroads


By John

Cosenza's relaunch plan includes the match against Palermo. The Sicilians are not going through an easy time. The last victory of the Rosanero team dates back to March 10, the day in which they violated the “Rigamonti-Ceppi” in Lecco. Both are therefore looking for the key to aiming for their respective objectives. The Wolves eased the pressure slightly with the draw achieved in Piacenza against Feralpisal√≤ but are absolutely aware that to lower the decibels furthermore it is essential to pass the match against the Palermitans with flying colours. Viali, in particular, is chasing his first seal since he returned to the Bruzia bench.
The coach from Vaprio d'Adda will try to achieve an encore against his next opponents. Seventeen months ago, in fact, he won his first overall victory with Cosenza against Palermo. On 12 November 2022, at the “Marulla”, he prevailed against Eugenio Corini's men with goals from Florenzi, Rigione and Larrivey (a brace from Brunori, on the other side). On Saturday he will only be able to count on the first to complete the mission. The other two left Crati in the two market sessions following that confrontation.
Reports. Differentiated work for Idriz Voca and Bright Gyamfi during yesterday's double session. William Viali's group will return to training this afternoon when an open-door session is scheduled at the “Marulla” stadium (3pm). Yesterday, meanwhile, the team carried out the first of two work sessions at the “Delmorgine”, starting with a mobility activation phase, then continuing the session with a strength circuit training and exercises on team tactics and ball possession. In the afternoon, spent at the “Marulla”, after an activation and mobility phase, the group was involved in a tactical exercise, exercises on ball possession and a themed match.
As expected, the sports judge stopped Manuel Marras for a turn. The absence of the Genoese could allow Luigi Canotto to receive a chance. The Rossoneri, however, will have to contend with Simone Mazzocchi. Mirko Antonucci should instead be there from the first minute, encouraged by the goal against Feralpisalò. Two Palermo players were also stranded and will therefore miss the match against the Wolves. They are the defender Fabio Lucioni and the external attacker Francesco Di Mariano. Two significant absences for the new Rosanero coach Michele Mignani.
