Crotone, heart is needed to make the difference against a Foggia team fresh from seven useful results in a row. The formations

«From a human point of view I spent the best week since I started coaching, because I’m 52 years old and I’ve been playing football since I was 10 and the ball – which the coach brings out showing to the press saying “do you see this?” – after family, it is the most important thing in my life: passion, seriousness, lifelong sacrifices and the desire to fight for him because he has given me so much and I will never betray him. What happened to me this week, and I didn’t expect it, I put among the most important victories.”

There he is “Zauli thought” after the gesture of the team which asked for and obtained an about-turn on the dismissal of the coach by president Gianni Vrenna. But Foggia arrives at the “Scida” this afternoon, a tough opponent who comes from seven consecutive useful results and who has only lost once. It will be an excellent testing ground to start tackling upcoming commitments with humility, dedication and attention to detail. «From today onwards we need the result – underlines Mister Zauli -, the team has always shown seriousness and professionalism, but now they must also add heart. And this can make a difference. I saw the boys really motivated, they will do everything to beat Foggia. The intention is to play a great match, then there may be difficulties, but always after having given everything.”
Without the injured D’Errico and Papini, Zauli could switch to a 3-5-2 with Dini between the posts, Loiacono, Gigliotti and Bove in defence, D’Ursi and Tribuzzi on the midfield outs with Petriccione, Felippe and Vitale completing the Department. In attack, Gomez and one between Tumminello and Vuthaj. But, beyond the men on the pitch, the only thing that will count this time will be the result to try to turn the page once and for all.
