Catania have had a superb start to the season and are at the upper part of the Serie A table.
“We are focusing on Udinese, but I get angry when people talk about it as a top of the table clash,” he explained.
“Pasquale Marino’s squad is strong and balanced. Furthermore it is full of important players who can win a game on their own.
“We must play carefully and we can’t afford to show any arrogance. The key is that we try and spring a surprise and are ready to pounce on any mistake from our opponents.
“All I’m interested in is getting the points to push us up the table – the nice football can wait.
“I’d rather play badly and get the points, rather than receiving compliments and staying in the bottom half.”
