2 weeks has gone since Goldenboy Paolo Baggio made his return to Odense after 5 seasons back home in Scotland. The return of the prodigal son has given the opportunity to play a different role in the golden league as well as in the danish league and cup. Hattrick News Odense has had a talk with Odense president Scavo about what seems to be a return to something recognizable. A strong experienced squad with Baggio as the main player in the squad. Something the club also did when they bought a 17 years old Paolo Baggio 8 seasons ago. “We paid a lot of money to get Baggio back to Odense. The goldenboy himself coast most of our money and then we had to get some players to help us and Baggio to reach the aims we have for both the club and Baggio in the future” Scavo said and continued. “We know the way of the game when we are out on a long-term mission like this. We tried it the first time Baggio was here and we will try again. What i am talking about is the hope for Baggio to become a part of Scotland NT. Both Baggio and MSO know that it is a long shot and there is no guarantees. It is a wish all 3 parts has and we know what to do to try and make it happen” Scavo said.
Goldenboy’s return to MS Park cost the club over 7 million dollars and another 2½ millions to make a fairly strong squad based on training Baggio and also be a serious opponent for the many clubs they play against. “When Baggio was here last time., We took him to the U20 level and our teams foundation was with a strong experienced midfield and attack. This time we have set our focus on the defense. A very strong defense that is. A defense we like to call the great wall of Odense. Baggio and a handful of experienced defenders is our big defensive line with defensive stats at a level we never have reach in the club before. You can also call our new defense and Baggio for a bulwark. They will be ready to resist even the biggest ships for most of the games. We have seen that recently with the games against FC Prague Silvers and Polomit. Yes we have lost the games but they are teams much better than us. But we have fought hard in both games and our opponents has to give their best to get the wins. We expect all teams to have to do so. Even Krosnianka Karpaty Krosno and AFC Wirschtlstand – 2 Other very strong teams we expect to collide with soon” Scavo said.
Tomorrow will see Odense in a league match with little interest of the Odense club president. “Right now we will get Baggio in a perfect shape and try and get him closer to Scotland NT. At the start of next season will will also focus on getting some more wins than this season. A season that might have been the poorest in 15 seasons or so. When looking at winning streaks. Streaks who has been nowhere near Odense this season. That will chance next season. We believe and are positive about the great wall of Odense will earn us many points next season” was the last words form mr Scavo.
