The ex-Roma player, today coaching Catania, commented the upcoming clash against his once archrivals Lazio to corrieredellosport.it. The fact that this season so far is an extremely tight one, with only four points separating Lazio in second and Catania at tenth place, assured Montella that his team has a good chance against Lazio despite the capital based club being favourites.
“Lazio is the team with the best form at the moment. This year however, any team can win or lose against any other team in Serie A. The Lecce-Milan game is a perfect example of this” said Montella, and continued “...against Fiorentina we came back twice despite suffering two goals that we should have avoided. I am satisfied with the commitment of the players, but I am not satisfied with the outcome. Without the mistakes we would have won another two points, and I have to ask my players to be concentrated and focused all through the game. If we manage to play to our fullest potential, technically and tactically, I am sure we have a great chance to bring something with us back from Rome.”
