The new Serie A is back on time and the column of ilgiornale.it, “The man less”, is back on time. The first day of the championship did not give any surprises with the top eight of last season that did not betray expectations by winning on their debut. The Fiorentina of Vincenzo Italiano got the better in the end of an excellent Cremonese punished by a very serious mistake of his goalkeeper: Ionut Andrei Radu. He himself, who in the past season with a sensational topic gave the victory to Bologna by delivering, in fact, or almost, the Scudetto to Stefano Pioli’s Milan.
The newly promoted in A leagueafter having held up against the Viola (who arrived seventh last season), they had to bow to the Viola who won 3-2 thanks to Radu who, in an attempt to block a ball in high grip, on a very insidious cross, in fact he threw the ball into his own goal to the delight of the biola fans and the anger of the grigiorossa public.

The Cremonese coach, Massimiliano Alvinion his debut in Serie A he tried to defend the boy by exalting his performance despite the error costing three points: “How do I judge Radu’s performance? Very important. He was down, I told him to raise his head: that error doesn’t exist , he’s canceled. I’m very happy with his performance, he has to look forward to improving every day in training. He’s a great goalkeeper, he’s been given a label he doesn’t deserve. “
The truth is that Alvini is right and a mistake cannot affect a season or the judgment on a soccer player. The fact is, however, that in less than 4 months Radu committed two sensational issues that cost Inter and Cremonese two defeats. The Romanian 25 has strong shoulders and will certainly be able to recover as the year has just started. This, however, does not exempt him from taking the throne of “The Man Less” this week given the extent and gravity of the mistake made that cost his team a point.
