Eugenio Corini remains confident Chievo “can fight for safety with this determination” despite defeat to Verona.
The Flying Donkeys are hovering on the edge of the relegation zone following a 1-0 home loss to their local rivals.
“Luca Toni is having an extraordinary season and he is the player who created the most difficulties for us,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“In the first half we controlled the game, whereas Verona had a stronger start in the first 15 minutes after the restart.
“We had been getting back into it, but Hellas scored a goal. We had three or four chances to equalise, but couldn’t finish them off.
“There are regrets, but with this hunger and determination we can fight to the end for safety.”
