At the beginning of the season there was a turning point: Guido Cappelletto resigned and its position as the club's president was taken by the entrepreneur Giuseppe Bertoli, co-owner of Officine Bertoli in Paderno, north of Udine. He was able to erase the club's debts of the amount of nearly 9 million liras.
Bertoli was the protagonist of bianconero football, he was a determined man. Trained first by Hermann Schramseis, Austrian coach, and then by Elio Loschi, Udinese only reached the tenth position, as we had already mentioned, and could not leave Serie C. Bertoli was able to handle the situation and wanted the former goalkeeper Aldo Olivieri, World Champion in Paris in 1938, to train the team building a balanced squad. It really proved to be a good choice. Udinese went back to Serie B but they were not ready to compete for Serie A yet. Bertoli hired an offensive trio from Mestrina: Perissnotto-Darin-Dalle Vacche; and Solan, an Irish player, joined from Torino. New purchases were Brandolin, goalkeeper, (Lazio), then Berganmasco (Pro Gorizia), Farina (Chieti), Zorzi and Vicich (Sampdoria). Zorzi had already played in Udinese and he was happy to come back. Then there was Severino Feruglio, a hallmark of bianconeri history, one of the main protagonists that lead Udinese to Serie A. Udinese finished in the second place with 60 points, behind Napoli (61) and eventually reached Serie A. The lineup was more or less the same as the previous year, but for Aldo Olivieri, now playing for Inter; the new incomer was Guido Testolina, a coach whose attitude was mainly defensive. The team experienced only slight changes. Sloan left and Soerensen joined Udinese together with Acconcia (Fiorentina), Marchi (Bologna), Rinaldi and Toppan (Milan), Forlani (Reggiana), Paulinich (Cremonese).
