Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano was disappointed following the 1-0 loss to Lazio last night.
Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) last night, the 43-year-old Italian coach reflected upon the Viola’s defeat to the Biancocelesti at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday.
I think it’s a match where anything could have happened. We played a great game, we wanted to bring home some points but we didn’t manage it. I’m sorry.
We had a lot of chances that didn’t turn into goals. Here everyone has suffered against Lazio and we managed to stop them from thinking and this is a sign of great personality and identity.
If you want to play mainly in the opponent’s half of the pitch you have to get used to it. With a little more application we can solve this problem.
Unfortunately we didn’t score any points but the glass is half full. We’re managing to play the game everywhere.
Fiorentina now sit 8th in the Serie A table after the opening 10 games, sitting on 15 points. The Viola are two points behind Lazio, who bounced back well after their painful 4-1 defeat to Hellas Verona on Sunday.
The Florence based club’s next game is against Spezia on Sunday afternoon, a game that should be a simple win for Italiano’s side.
Lazio’s next game is against Atalanta in Bergamo on Saturday afternoon, a very difficult but important game as the team look for a top four finish.
