The past 5 seasons have been far from memorable for Udinese, who have hired and sacked lots of coaches, while always struggling for salvation and failing to repeat the wonders of the previous decade. In the past 2 campaigns, they only managed to achieve safety at the very end, thanks to Igor Tudor’s services. While he had not been confirmed at the start of the last season, this time around the management opted to give him an opportunity to prove his skills for the whole term. Then, they hired Pierpaolo Marino as sports director. He was one of the architects of Udinese at their best, under Zaccheroni and Spalletti, and he was given the reins again, which should prove that the Pozzo family are not exclu-sively concentrated on Watford. Tudor will not be able to count on Zeegelaar, a left-back, and Okaka, a centre-forward, in the new campaign as the two returned to their parent club despite proving fundamental for the final salvation. More players left over the summer but, among them, only Behrami, whose past campaign was a positive one, but spent more time on the sidelines than on the pitch, is worth mentioning. In terms of signings, Udinese hired two players like Jajalo and Nestoroski, who did well at Palermo, and were set free once the Sicilians failed last month. They were both much needed as Udinese lacked a real playmaker and a prolific striker. Moreover, they added Becao to the defence and that is a bit of a risk as he has no experience in Western European football. On the other hand, Walace should be a useful and skillful midfielder. Balic, returning from a loan in the Netherlands, could also be given relevant playing time in a role à la Pirlo. If Pezzella does not remain at the club, they will need a left-back while they might lose a lot in terms of quality if De Paul is sold to a bigger club.

Target


Udinese aim at quiet safety but they might be struggling if Tudor does not manage to give the team a more enterprising style of football. The summer attempts at adopting a back 4 have been not particularly promising.

Season Review
2018/2019

№12: Udinese

Udinese achieved safety again and this time they did it much more comfortably. It took a false start under Julio Velazquez and a brief fling with Davide Nicola before they went back to the tried and trusted Igor Tudor. Velazquez was a shock and unpopular appointment among the Friulani faithful - having had no experience in Italian football - but the Spaniard showed early signs of being a welcome surprise with 8 points from his first 5 games in charge. Unfortunately for him, the honeymoon period didn't last and a dreadful run of just 1 point from 7 Serie A matches saw him given his marching orders with the club facing relegation. Nicola was hired after performing miracles to keep Crotone in the top flight and despite a great debut victory over Roma, he couldn't sustain that level of performance from this squad and was sacked in March. Tudor kept Udinese up at the end of last season and he managed to repeat the trick - winning half of the final 10 games of the season. This time the club have pinned him down to a contract for next season. Rodrigo de Paul was able to flourish no matter who was in charge - bagging 9 goals and 8 assists to make him quite clearly Udinese's most influential player. He will certainly be wanted in the summer and the club would do very well to hold onto him.
