“We are there, we take the criticism that we are owed, but we are fighting and will be safe again this season,” assured the Coach in his Press conference.
“When you are battling to avoid relegation, you have many chances, but you need to improve the performances.”
Corini took over with three consecutive victories, but the honeymoon period has ended and Chievo were jeered off the field after a 0-0 draw with Cagliari.
“I am not thinking about those jeers, as we have to stay within the game, work and improve ourselves. We have 20 games, 20 opportunities to save ourselves and must do well to keep our heads.
“We have the characteristics to trouble even the most important opponents and that is a great motivator. So far this season Chievo have given their fans the joy of winning the Verona Derby. At the time we were bottom of the table, but now we’re here fighting.”
