Jairo Ramos Jezi He tries to throw water on the fire, but BBC Grosseto’s prop on Neptune makes him the Person of the Week. The Italian-Venezuelan coach arrived in Italy in 1998 and his name is associated with Grosseto’s greatest fortunes until 2010. It was there fifteen years ago that Montepaschi Grosseto won the fourth championship at the expense of Neptune in the seventh match, in front of 8000 people.
Surely last Saturday’s enplein doesn’t have the same value, but Spirulina Becali With two successes (6-4, 3-2) he certainly changed the cards on the table in Group D, putting Ludovisi’s men in a position not to make mistakes in the next six games.
Two statements confirm the correctness of the choices made by sporting director Filippo Olivelli at the request of a coach who also wants to make his mark on the bench.
“This duo – says Jairo Ramos – does not change anything, we must continue to win, without thinking that we have passed Neptune twice. Obviously we made a small step forward because we beat the strongest team in our group, but we must continue, starting with next Sunday’s derby against Bsc Grosseto.”
“Anyway, it was a good double – adds Spirulina coach Becali – we trained well for these two games, the boys played perfectly, as I asked them during the week; they were focused until the end. Saturday night we could have lost, but the boys were always there ».
In the first game Grosseto, after four balanced rounds, place the arrow using a high-quality lineup, with hits by Herrera, Barcelan, Albert and Loardi, Foucault’s attack.
“We made timely jokes in both the first and second races – confirms Ramos – on Saturday night I made some mistakes in defence, the first of our season, but after Paulino Ambrosino was injured, today at noon, I had to move some players. On the other hand, Barcelan was in pain. in his leg and I didn’t want to risk him for a match.”
As sweet words come from the director to his shooters: “Well done, everyone, without distinction. Cozzolino gave me fifth shots as I asked him to; Gonzalez kept Neptune’s attack at zero in our worst moments and Nogueira is an experienced man who knows the Italian championship well and has fired four rounds of framing.”
We add that Uberto celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the perfect game with redemption, which was acquired on April 14, 2007.
“What I love the most about these guys – adds Ramos – is that they work like professionals, they train hard in the gym and on the pitch. Of course the situation has changed compared to last year: in 2021 I had 5-6 players available during the week, and this week I have them all Almost the result of the work was different.”
Did you expect a stronger Neptune? “We already faced him in a friendly match and we were expecting this group, which has 11 shooters and strong hitters, even if in Grosseto they had to dispense with two elements. But they are a great team.”
“My crew and I have always believed in Grosseto – he concludes – we knew they were tough matches, but we faced them in the best way and managed to get the best result.”
