Vanoli: "Match to be approached with head and patience"

April 19, 2024

On the eve of day 34 of Serie B 2023/24, which will see Venezia face Lecco away at the Rigamonti-Ceppi stadium tomorrow at 16:15, orange and green coach Paolo Vanoli analyzed the team's momentum and the opponent.

"Against Lecco will be a dangerous match, because the hosts with the change of coach have regained confidence and will fight until the last second of the match. It will be played on a completely different playing surface, and that is precisely why we trained yesterday on the synthetic field of Ca' Venezia, also focusing on understanding the differences between a grass field and a synthetic one. It will be a tricky match, to be played with head and patience, and it will be completely different from the match played against Brescia. On my side I have great luck, I managed to build a great group and we all want to get to our big dream. I would like to thank our magnificent fans, who against Brescia pushed us to victory.

I am lucky to have so many good players and everyone has to be ready for the cause. Sometimes you become a hero in five minutes, and what I am really enjoying is that those on the bench are constantly inciting their teammates and have the desire to get on the field to make their contribution. All the choices today are a function of putting the best lineup on the field to get to our big dream, and tomorrow we will also have to think about the aspect of the pitch, which is different from all the others, and this is a factor we have to take into consideration, taking care of the details. This group has to think about fighting, this team works hard and for the past year and a half the players are showing that they are attached to the jersey and that they love this club."
