The Udinese coach spoke on the eve of the league match against Torino

Udinese coach Sottil spoke on the eve of the league match against Torino, the club with which he made his debut as a professional footballer: “I grew up footballing in Torino and I have wonderful memories, I am very close professionally, but now it’s another Toro. In all these years I never felt close to them, I took other paths. Today I am proudly coaching Udinese, the only team I wanted to coach if I had a call in Serie A.”

On Sunday’s match: “I know them well, they have a precise identity and a clear-cut way of playing, Ivan Juric’s trademark. They have very competitive forwards, Juric can decide whether or not to give points of reference up front. He has quick trequartisti and we will have to be ready for both situations. I foresee a very physical match, and whoever is hungrier to win duels will prevail. We have the weapons to hurt and be incisive.”
