Catania coach Silvio Baldini admits the best period of his career was spent at tonight's opponents Empoli.

"I went through the best experience of my career at Empoli," admitted Baldini, who has since been fired by Palermo, Parma and Lecce.

"There I found my niche as a Coach and as a person. I had a great time professionally and off the field, helping to raise a wonderful group of young players."
