Empoli coach Aurelio Andreazzoli is not getting carried away after the 3-1 win over Udinese. ‘We should be careful; our target is to reach safety’.
The Azzurri picked up another win and climbed up to reach Hellas Verona at 10th in Serie A, as goals from Petar Stojanovic, Nedim Bajrami and Andrea Pinamonti secured three points against Udinese.
Gerard Deulofeu had given the visitors the lead in the first half, but Andreazzoli’s men responded with a great reaction and turned the match around in the second half.
“By now, the lads have made us accustomed to having this reaction, even those who enter put in a lot of energy to help,” the coach said at a press conference.
“We are happy, this is a good step, pursued as it should be. The second half wen beyond the most optimistic expectations, we had a truly remarkable half hour of football.
“I had a lot of fun, we bombed them and it’s nice. We are happy because we played a great game, we got a result that strengthened our position.”
But the coach highlighted the room for improvement and warned his players about getting carried away by the result.
“We should be careful of the euphoria, because our target was not just to beat Udinese,” Andreazzoli added. “We have a target: salvation. We have to rest assured.
“Let’s enjoy it, but then we put petrol in the tank because there so many missing.”
