    Catania coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is ready to hand new signing Maxi Lopez a debut this weekend against Udinese.

    The former FC Moscow striker is one of the biggest signings Catania have landed in recent times.

    “Maxi is training and he will be ready for Sunday. I don't know if I will line him up from the start or put him on the bench,” Mihajlovic said.

    He then reflected on Catania's 1-0 defeat to Roma, which knocks them out of the Coppa Italia.

    “We knew that they would make a game of it. We had few problems when we were playing with 11 men. When we went down to 10 men I hope there would be a goal because I didn't want to play another half an hour. I didn't want to prolong the agony.

    “The lads did well. We were thinking more about Sunday's game, even if we didn't come here to lose. They were very good and deserved to win.

    “It will be another story in a few weeks though.”
