The Italian coach spoke to the media on Tuesday ahead of the Serie A home match against Genoa.
Eusebio Di Francesco doesn’t want distractions against Ballardini‘s men. Genoa is in a comfortable position in the Serie A standings but the Giallorossi must bite the prey with no mercy to collect important three points for the Champions League.
Although the Lupi will be playing an epic UCL clash against Liverpool next week, Di Francesco pushed his guys to give their best even against the RossoBlu.
The Italian coach is going to change his starting 11. But there’s a player that cannot be replaced, Edin Dzeko. EDF praised the Bosnian star saying, “Dzeko has had so little rest because, in my opinion, he is fundamental to the team’s success in every way. He will play again tomorrow, to show everyone how important it is to us that we stay determined and win.”
However, all the players are important for EDF because “we need to be quick and alert in order to make the most of the situation we’re in. My guys are up for it. They are ready to pitch in and work for the team.”
