Pescara stick with Perin

Pescara earned crucial points with Ivan Pelizzoli’s saves, but Coach Giovanni Stroppa warns he’s going back on the bench against Cagliari.

The goalkeeper stepped in after Mattia Perin was sent off against Bologna and immediately saved a penalty, then secured their first clean sheet of the season against Palermo.

“Perin will play. I have to be consistent with my choices, which means Ivan is on the bench and Perin on the field,” said Stroppa in his Press conference.

“Perin started well against Torino and Sampdoria, so his red card has not remotely changed the line-up I have in my mind.

“Pelizzoli was decisive, but there’s no point in changing just for the sake of it. We will not modify the decisions we made over the summer.”
