Marchetti impressed by Pioli

Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti is impressed with new Coach Stefano Pioli. “He’s a great communicator.”

The ex-Bologna boss replaced Edy Reja over the summer and has already won over his shot-stopper.

“Pioli is a Coach who favours dialogue with his players. He’s a great communicator,” Marchetti told Lazio Style Radio.

“He asked us goalkeepers precise questions too, as he wants to see a team that has initiative. He asked us to play the ball to feet and we’re working on that too.”

The Biancocelesti have not qualified for Europe, so Pioli will have all week to prepare Serie A games this season.
