Malan ‘applause’ for Chievo players

Rolando Maran says he needs to ‘applaud’ his Chievo players after a 2-0 win at Cagliari this afternoon.

Roberto Inglese put the Flying Donkeys ahead in Sardinia early in the second half, before Mariusz Stepinski added a second late on to kill off the Rossoblu.

“I’m pleased that the team expressed itself in the best possible way,” Maran commented after seeing his side move into the top half of the Serie A table.

“We put in a good performance out on the pitch. It was our first afternoon kick-off of the season and it was in a hot place like Cagliari.

“I need to applaud my players.”

Chievo now have eight points from their opening six matches of the season.
