Cagliari winger Riccardo Sottil believes his side must follow Coach Eusebio Di Francesco lead in order to change things.

Riccardo Sottil

, who is on a loan contract from

Fiorentina

, scored the equalizer at 1-1 in the 3-2 loss against

Atalanta

which led to their exit from Coppa Italia on Thursday.

Cagliari

have had a disappointing start to the New Year, but Coach

Eusebio Di Francesco

has the full support of the players.

“We wanted to advance by beating a very strong opponent, it’s too bad because the reaction was the right one,”

Sottil told the club’s website

.

“We were good at suffering and creating opportunities to score goals.

“Atalanta are a top team and they put a lot of pressure on you. I’m happy for my goal, but it’s clear that it’s a partial joy and very weakened by the lack of the positive result for the team.

Cagliari are on a ten-winless run this season, including five defeats in a row in all competitions but the 21-year-old winger said the team are doing their best to change things.

“This team have important values on a technical and moral level,”

he said.

“We are working hard to get out of the complicated situation.

“We must follow the coach because together we can react and start with Monday’s match against Milan.

“I’m convinced that we can improve and return to obtaining those results that have been missing.”
