Udinese response delights Guidolin

Francesco Guidolin has praised his Udinese side for victory against a Sassuolo outfit who impressed him.

The Bianconeri went into Wednesday’s game after their disappointing 1-0 home loss to Roma at the weekend.

“I got the reply I wanted from my team,” he stated after a game where both Antonio Di Natale and Luis Muriel netted in the 2-1 triumph. “We faced the encounter in the right way.

“The result is very important and we got it thanks to a good performance. This was a fundamental game for us.

“We led the game, but Sassuolo proved to be a good team too – especially in the second half. They never gave up. They are a quality team eager to fight.”

The Stadio Friuli outfit will now face a potentially tricky game against Inter in Week 11.

“Inter are a good team and new boss Walter Mazzarri is making a difference. The team is solid and more determined than last year.”
