Udinese coach Gotti admits enjoying drama of 4-4 draw with Lazio

Udinese coach Luca Gotti admits he enjoyed their 4-4 draw with Lazio last night.

At one stage, the Zebrette were 3-1 ahead before Lazio started their fight-back.

Gotti said afterwards: “This game was like a giant rollercoaster. When you are 3-1 up and paradoxically can be more dangerous in that situation because you can go on the counter, it's really disappointing that it all turned around.

“Pedro threaded his finish through the legs of defenders, Milinkovic-Savic came out with a stunner, then the red cards and everything else.

“We saw a game that ended 4-4 and the goalkeepers made one save apiece. It was a total anomaly of a match. I didn't get the sensation during the game that Lazio were getting back into it. We were a little deeper, but that was also a plan to create more spaces for us to go on the counter."

He added: “I knew that Lazio have this very high press, so I wanted to have two strikers who could attack the space and go on the counter. I considered Fernando Forestieri in the starting XI too, but like Isaac Success, he doesn't have 90 minutes in his legs."
