Once the finishing session at the "Massimino" was concluded, Mister Lucarelli answered the journalists' questions in the press room, analyzing the main themes in view of the match against Messina: "Catania arrives well, we have had a typical week or almost and we are managed to prove some things, strengthening our concepts about others. I know how this match is prepared by our opponents, having been on the other side: usually I would say that the opponent in question wants to beat us no more or less than the others, in this case I say they want to beat us much more than the others; Messina is a proactive, organized and well-trained team. I take this opportunity to thank and say goodbye to that environment, if I hadn't passed through there I would probably never have coached Catania and I have fond memories of that experience. I expect another mental performance: performances can be influenced for better or for worse by some factors, including those relating to the moment and the characteristics of the opponents and so sometimes you can play well or not well, but you stay in the game with the mental performance. Of Carmine? It could be from the match, we will decide in the next few hours whether from the start or in the running, we have two other situations to monitor. We must be good at concentrating on the green rectangle and always have the belief that we can get a result. I would like weekly gifts, not a present under the tree at Christmas, the transfer market is a premature topic and if we talked about it today we would throw away everything built in these four races, the group is guaranteeing maximum commitment and concentration to finish 2023 well. Catania a player has been better since the second year and I want to understand who could be a different player from next year: it's about understanding who can give us a hand in the future. I have identified elements with charismatic abilities in the various departments, we consider that everyone has their own way, visible or silent, to express their leadership. I want more from everyone, we have the third to last attack in the championship, we develop and create so we have to achieve more. Dueling competition? Yes, the more we win, the more chance we have of winning. It would be good to go and try to regain the points that due to our demerit we did not obtain with Virtus Francavilla. Tomorrow's match will also be training in view of Wednesday, because Modica is very inspired by Zeman. We cannot do calculations, all matches are fundamental and we must always try to win them: we have no alternatives. We have already climbed three positions and we must try to gain as many points as possible and recover others. We cannot risk losing players by allowing ourselves to be influenced too much by the desire to obtain results. An in-form striker who is initially left out? Knowing how to enter a match in progress is an art, in the first 20 minutes of each match everyone does what has been prepared, then chances and "holes" are created, furthermore the approach after having had a reduced playing time must be considered. We are looking first and foremost for the certainty of the result to achieve a string of positive results."
