Guidolin concerned Udinese passion is ending

25 September 2013 18:25

Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin has expressed concern over the atmosphere around the club after he was jeered by sections of the crowd.

The 57-year-old has been at charge at the Stadio Friuli since 2010, and has helped the Udine outfit achieve three top-five finishes in Serie A during that time.

However, Guidolin was booed as Udinese struggled to a 1-0 win over Genoa on Tuesday, and he has subsequently discussed a change in atmosphere at the club this season.

"It’s better that the fans take it out on me," he told Sky Sport Italia. "Perhaps some think we can win the Scudetto, but we’ve already performed miracles here.

"Something has changed in the atmosphere around the club. I made my decisions, but it looks as if the passion around me is ending, even though my passion for Udinese has only strengthened.

"I chose to rest Luis Muriel because even for a young player it’s tough to have two games in three days. These are the decisions a coach makes, albeit knowing the fans will complain."

Despite the unrest in the stands, Udinese eventually broke down a resilient Genoa defence with 11 minutes to play when Antonio Di Natale struck his second league goal of the campaign.

And Guidolin has praised his players for showing patience during the Italian top-flight encounter.

“I was pleased to bring home a difficult and deserved victory, because we came up against a Genoa side that closed everything down," he added.

“Despite the fact we didn’t create that many chances, I was satisfied with the approach, the determination and the overall performance."
