Claudio Ranieri’s words ahead of Lecce-Cagliari


After the elimination in the Coppa Italia at the hands of Milan, Cagliari è awaits the challenge with Lecce, valid for the 19th and final day of Serie A. A few days before the challenge at the Via del Mare, the islanders’ coach Claudio Ranieri, during the pre-match press conference, wanted to emphasize the importance of the match for his boys.

"The challenge with Lecce will be very important, but not decisive. Our fans must understand that we have difficulties and they must stand by us. We knew from the beginning that it would not be an easy championship, we have to be positive. We expected more from the new people, but we should not blame them, they are trying to adapt. We are going to play a piece of Serie A at Via del Mare" began the coach of the Rossoblù.

"I don’t know, the lowest point would be if we didn’t run, we didn’t want to do. When you play well and you get goals like thatì you say holy crap. I è sorry because weé melted in the sun. After conceding goals we got depressed and I didn&#39t like the game, I told the guys, there's a way and a way to lose. I am not talking about the commitment and the race against AC Milan, but if you don&#39t put tactics and apply it in the right way, against quality players; you make bad figures" added the islanders’ coach.

"They will try to beat us and keep us under. We have to play our game. We know that è a very aggressive team. Lecce è the second team for fouls in the opponent’s half of the field, so they will come to get us acts and try to hurt us with pressing. We know we have to fight, we will do it to the end and in the end we will see where we will be. We all have to stay compact to keep up the flame of the Serie A" Claudio Ranieri commented.
