Zapata: Udinese only thinking about staying up

Despite victory at Fiorentina on Sunday, Cristian Zapata insists Serie A safety is Udinese's only target this season.

"Staying up is our first aim," said the young Colombian, "everything else isn't worth thinking about. Even this week, we've talked about it amongst ourselves and the only thing we want for now is to make sure we stay in Serie A.

"We're doing well, the points and the standing in the table are undeniable, but we're only a third into the season. We need to be balanced in our expectations.

"As we've said many times, we live hand-to-mouth."
