Pre-season: Udinese in upbeat mood
Coventry City round off their pre-season preparations on Saturday with a home game against Serie A side Udinese at the Ricoh Arena.
Antonio Di Natale, Udinese's top goalscorer last season is on confident mood ahead of the new campaign, saying this week: 'The dressing room is excellent, the team is young and there is a lot of desire to do well.'
The Bianconeri's league campaign does not begin until two weeks after City's and they face champions Inter in their first game.
New coach Pasquale Marino said however: "I do not fear the first game. This squad is very motivated and really wants to get going."
