Cristian Bucchi insists “a Coach can train tactics and fitness, but not character” after Sassuolo crumbled to a 2-0 home defeat against Verona.

The Neroverdi were unable to get a goal back at the Mapei Stadium even after Hellas went down to 10 men.

“Unfortunately, the same things keep happening and our problem is a lack of character,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Cristian Bucchi insists “a Coach can train tactics and fitness, but not character” after Sassuolo crumbled to a 2-0 home defeat against Verona.

The Neroverdi were unable to get a goal back at the Mapei Stadium even after Hellas went down to 10 men.

“Unfortunately, the same things keep happening and our problem is a lack of character,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We always start the game well, but the moment the first difficulty arrives, this team loses its way. A Coach can train tactics and fitness, but not character. We need players who have that determination, can shake off difficult moments and win ugly.

“This is an aspect we must work on and it’s hard to do that when the same pattern keeps repeating itself. We’ve had seven home games this season and scored only one goal. There is certainly something wrong, as when the time comes to finish a move, we don’t have the right determination or aggression.

“Hellas did well, they made the most of our errors. We knew what to expect and lost the plot at the first mistake.”

Bucchi seems to be believe he’s done all he can with this Sassuolo squad and the club may well agree with reports Beppe Iachini is ready to step in.
