MILAN – The former TV commentator for the Italian national team Bruno Pizzul, who was born in Udine, has written an article in today’s edition of the Messaggero Veneto. In addition to writing about the form of his hometown team Udinese, he also reflected on how the rossoneri go into tonight’s match at the Stadio Friuli:
"Mihajlovic, accustomed to saying things as they are, wasn’t exactly kind with his words on the team’s first few displays, but he said he was happy after the defeat in the derby and the win, even though they struggled, against Palermo. It needs to be recognised that he doesn’t say things just for the sake of it and you can see that he wants the team to move the ball around quicker, with balls played forwards to exploit the immense qualities of Luiz Adriano and Bacca, who are two inspired signings."
