Catania President Antonino Pulvirenti is eyeing Europa League qualification as he warns his team not to relax their current form.
The Elefanti have, under Vincenzo Montella’s coaching, risen up the table to a comfortable 7th place. With nine League matches to go, the Sicilians sit two places and six points away from Udinese, who currently hold the final Europa League qualification place.
Ahead of welcoming League leaders Milan this weekend, Pulvirenti revealed that he thinks Catania are perhaps capable of closing in on that gap to Europe.
“There is great anticipation,” the Italian businessmen told Radio Sportiva on Friday, in talking of facing the Rossoneri on Saturday.
“It’s an important game because we are experiencing a great run of form, whilst the team we face is the strongest in Italy.
“I am very anxious, I want the team to follow up the good performance at Napoli. We’ll play a great game and then we’ll see about the result.
“This year I had raised the target to achieve to 50 points and we are in reach of that, plus we are pushing for a Europa League qualification position. Certainly we must try, but I want one thing above all, we must not let go.”
