The former coach of Spartak and Cheryshev made a splash. Will Venice reach Serie A?

Pavel Prokhorov May 23, 2023, 14:01 Moscow time

Vanoli took the team out of the relegation zone and took it to the meetings.

On May 19 in Serie B the 2022/2023 regular season ended. Frosinone and Genoa advanced to Serie A, while Bari, Parma, Cagliari, Zuidtirol, Reggina and Venezia will compete for a third place in the top division in a play-off format. Paolo Vanoli’s team surprised many: nine games from the end of the season, they were in the play-offs for the right to stay in Serie B, but they jumped eight places to finish at the top of the table . We tell you how the former Spartak coach caused a sensation and how he fares against Denis Cheryshev.

How was the season of “Venice”. What do you need to qualify for Serie A?

Venezia had a terrible start: after 12 rounds, the club was in the penultimate place in the table with nine points and two wins. On November 7, 2022, the team was headed by former Spartak manager Paolo Vanoli. With him came the results. In the first five games, the Italian managed three wins and drew once. If before the arrival of the 50-year-old specialist, Venice lost 7 games out of 12, with him only 8 out of 26. The club won four of the last six games of the season and scored three goals for Palermo, four for Ternana, five for “Modena” and three – “Perugia”.

The match with Modena ended with the score 5:0. Poker in the “Venice” was designed by striker Yoel Pohyanpalo, who celebrated his fourth ball in an original way. The forward approached the fans’ podium, drank beer and took photos with the fans.

Venezia finished the season in 8th place with 49 points from 38 games. The rules of the playoffs in Serie B are as follows: the teams that occupy the third and fourth places wait for the two strongest teams from the fifth to the eighth row in the semifinals. Thus, on May 27, Venezia will play away with Cagliari, and if successful, in the semifinals of the grid with Parma. If Vanoli’s team reaches the final, they will face Bari, Reggina or Zuidtirol there.

Venice coach

“This season we accomplished a feat, moving up from the bottom of the standings. Now we have nothing to lose, there is everything we can gain. We must keep our thoughts free and give everything we can for ourselves and for the fans who supported us in our most difficult moments. Now the boys have to enjoy the party a bit, recover from a season in which we have given our best, even from a psychological point of view. We play Cagliari and we understand that we definitely need to win. To achieve great results, we must put in the effort and sacrifice for a week to get the game going. The team believes in itself.”

And Denis Cheryshev?

The Russian midfielder is not very good with playing time. Denis Cheryshev participated in 23 games, scored four goals and gave two assists. The midfielder started only five times and spent an average of 35 minutes on the field. The Russian gave an excellent game on the 7th round: he scored a double and gave an assist in the match with Cagliari (4: 1). Cheryshev also stood out at the end of the season: he scored a game-winning assist with Ascoli (1:0) and a goal against Ternana.

As in previous clubs, Denis is not left alone for long with injuries: he missed two months and seven Venice matches with a hamstring injury. Without him, the club scored only 8 points out of 21 possible. If Venice returns to Serie A, Cheryshev will most likely stay at the club. His contract is until the summer of 2024.
