Pordenone are the Serie C team currently enjoying an amazing cup run in Italy that has captured the imagination of the country. In the next round of the Coppa Italia they go to the San Siro to face Inter next Tuesday 12th December.
Inter Sporting Director Piero Ausilio spoke about Pordenone on Rai’s flagship Sunday night sports show Domenica Sportiva saying “it’s a beautiful story, but it must have an end…”, words that haven’t been received too well by the Pordenone President Mauro Lovisa.
When speaking to Telefriuli, Lovisa didn’t hide his disappointment at the words.
“Ausilio could and maybe should have spared those words. I heard what he said and I wasn’t pleased. Inter shouldn’t concern themselves with these things, they should only show a big welcome to the club they are hosting. Pordenone will go to Milan to play their own game. If Inter end up winning by a huge margin, we will shake hands with their players. But who knows maybe Pordenone could give the big team a scare away from home. Football is unpredictable. The city is buzzing and everyone is talking about this game. We want to put in a good performance and not just be the sacrificial victims.”
