The Friulani were hammered 3-0 by Lazio on Tuesday night after their elimination from the Europa League group phase.
“I am well aware of the bad performances, particularly at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday, and we need to get back to playing with the right temperament.
“We are a team who have to work hard and step on it to do well. We didn’t do that against Lazio. We must rediscover our characteristics and put them into the game.
“People say we have to be patient with all these injuries. I say we need the same patience when the ball is in play. We mustn’t lose our calm.”
Udinese squad for Cagliari: Brkic, Padelli, Pawlowski; Angella, Armero, Coda, Danilo, Gabriel Silva, Heurtaux, Pasquale; Allan, Badu, Faraoni, Pereyra, Willians; Barreto, Fabbrini, Di Natale, Maicosuel, Ranegie, Zielinski
