Only the tuna Callipo Vibo Valentia, seasonal ruler of the championship, from Italian Cup and Super Cupinterrupted the journey of Kemas Lamipel 2.0, a rethinking and newly motivated team that immediately recognized the Pisan coach as the new “leader”. A young coach, very prepared, attached to the colors and almost zero kilometers (he lives in Calci, just outside Pisa, 25 minutes from S. Croce sull’Arno). Perfect identity to lead a first team whose mission will be to make the public fall in love, fill the Pala Parenti and reach the two playoff semifinals recently achieved.
“When Vincenzo (Mastrangelo ed.) was replaced, the club urged all staff, including Pagliai and Morando, to continue the situation. – bully explained -. It was natural for us to accept the job, but I would like to point out that the team was not entrusted exclusively to me. Responsibilities have always been shared. The confirmation was automatic. We gained the trust of the CDA, who chose this staffing situation rather than finding someone from the outside to start over“.
Then he continues: “Our work mainly consisted of a change of mood in the dressing room, which was also reflected on the pitch through certain performances. We are therefore very pleased to be able to start again in a new situation with the stable workforce. I want to reiterate that the endorsement is not just mine, it’s that of the entire working group, without which I would have gotten (and still am) in big trouble.“.
On next season’s group, he adds: “As for next season’s group, we are preparing a team that will certainly be competitive and have a strong “young” component. Apart from a few fixed points with the necessary experience, we will have interesting young talents who need to be worked on, who have to wait for, but who could give us a significant leap in quality. They have potential, we have to be good at exploding them. It’s a situation that I like and that I think suits my training and my previous path. The way I work suits a squad like this very well“.
“I promise the fans that the attitude of the team will be what they saw in the final games of last season. Given the young age of the boys, we need immediate support, but also the patience of a warm and knowledgeable audience like S. Croce’s: the group needs time to work and grow. I would very much like to have this closeness to the boys, it could prove to be a decisive factor, especially when interpreting internal games‘ concludes coach Bulleri.
