Spezia manager Domenico Di Carlo: “We will go to Rome with courage.”

Spezia manager Mimmo Di Carlo spoke today to the club’s official website regarding Wednesday’s Coppa Italia tie against the Giallorossi at the Olimpico:

“Wednesday’s match comes after a busy period, but it’s match that we have wanted to play at all costs, it’s an award for the entire city, but it won’t be a catwalk: we will try to do our best and try with all our might to bring home a historic achievement. Unlike the big teams, we’re not used to playing every three days so many weeks in a row, so I’m sure there will be a bit of fatigue, but we will try out best in training. A lot will depend on Roma, too, but if you take the field and give 100%, you make things more difficult for the opponent.”

“We will go to Rome with courage, with our heads held high and without making calculations, dreaming of something historic and determined to play in the best way possible in order to reach the quarter-finals. We have nothing to lose, there is no doubt that they are stronger than us on paper and they should win without needing to exert too much effort. Thankfully for us, the field does the talking and we will try to make Roma’s life difficult and put forth our character, aggression, and desire at the Olimpico.”
