It is only a matter of time before Chievo turn their form around, according to club President Luca Campedelli.
The side from Verona currently sit second bottom of Serie A and are in serious danger of dropping out of Italy’s top flight.
“We can improve,” Campedelli told Chievo TV. “The transfer market maybe upset the team a little bit but it’s only a question of time.
“Against Catania it will be a battle of nerves.
“We must keep our concentration and nerves for the entirety of the match.
“We must rediscover the spirit we have lost and we must never give up.”
Chievo have now gone a year without being awarded a penalty.
“Let’s celebrate!” joked Campedelli.
