Francesco Guidolin admits Antonio Di Natale might not be ready to play for Udinese against Bologna tomorrow.
“I don’t know if he’ll play yet. We have to evaluate things on Sunday, as he picked up a knock and then there is also fatigue,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
“I have to take tiredness into consideration, but first of all I want to give a sense of importance to this game that will be very intense and crucial for us.”
Bologna are on dire form after four consecutive defeats, but Guidolin won’t consider this trip any less tough. Click here for a match preview.
“It makes me laugh when I heard about ‘easy’ games in a difficult season like ours. Bologna haven’t got anything wrong in recent matches on a tactical or psychological level. They are trained well and a solid side, while Stefano Pioli is a Coach I admire.”
Alessandro Diamanti returns from suspension and Guidolin confirms he wanted the Italian international in Udine.
“I spoke to the club about Diamanti because he is an excellent player. He’s a classic Number 10, one of the best in Italy.”
Udinese squad for Bologna: Brkic, Padelli, Pawlowski; Angella, Armero, Basta, Berra, Coda, Domizzi, Heurtaux; Allan, Badu, Faraoni, Lazzari, Pereyra, Willians; Barreto, Fabbrini, Di Natale, Maicosuel, Ranegie, Zielinski
