Pioli: 'Palermo make naive mistakes'

Palermo are out of the Europa League and lost a friendly 3-1 to Napoli. “We keep making naive mistakes,” said Stefano Pioli.

The season has been fairly disastrous so far for the Sicilians, crashing out of Europe at the first hurdle and falling in last night's San Paolo test.

“It's always disappointing to lose, even when three points are not up for grabs,” said Coach Pioli.

“We have to continue working very hard, as we keep making naive mistakes that cost us dearly and we cannot repeat them again.

“On the other hand, we also have to say that we faced a great Napoli side. I think they confirmed that they are candidates for the Scudetto.”
