“We certainly need to turn the tide during this negative moment, even if we are facing a very strong side, one potentially stronger than Juventus,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
“Chievo have the quality to trouble them and put in a strong performance. We must have intellectual honesty and be able to analyse games from 360 degrees to understand why results do not come.
“We played well against Fiorentina and were penalised by an offside goal, the kind of decision that makes a big difference in a tight League like Serie A. As things stand, we deserve an extra two points in the table.”
Chievo are two places clear of the relegation zone and have an eight-point buffer from the dead last trio of Siena, Palermo and Pescara.
“I can only say that we never sat back and relaxed. A few teams that were behind us in the stands have gone in front. We know our objective and that it has to be earned in every game.”
