Serie A: Post-Match Comments

Cagliari 2-1 Novara

Massimo Ficcadenti: “The secret of our strong start is that we are working well and therefore the results arrive. It is very pleasing to be top of the table.”

Attilio Tesser: “We didn't shoot enough times. After the break we went a bit better, but were still lacking something in the final third.”

Atalanta 1-0 Palermo

Stefano Colantuono: “These are three crucial points that represent oxygen for us. The lads took the right approach to this campaign.”

Devis Mangia: “We conceded a goal that we should've avoided. In the second half there was an improvement, but we were unable to keep the tempo I wanted.”

Bologna 0-2 Lecce

Pierpaolo Bisoli: Comments

Eusebio Di Francesco: “It is a deserved victory. We started a little tense, but then relaxed and took the lead, legitimising our success.”

Catania 1-0 Cesena

Vincenzo Montella: “We had a great performance and I am happy, as we defended well and never struggled. We interpreted this game the right way.”

Marco Giampaolo: “Up until the penalty, we were in control, then we didn't react properly in the second half and were too disorganised.”

Edy Reja: Comments

Alberto Malesani: “I am very happy. We're still a work in progress and struggled at the start, but we had a great second half and deserved the victory.”

Parma 2-1 Chievo

Franco Colomba: “In the first half we played well and wasted too many chances, while Chievo came out for the second half much more fiery and we had a few problems.”

Mimmo Di Carlo: “There is disappointment at this result. We tried to go for the win, but once again we paid a heavy price for our only mistake.”

Siena 0-1 Juventus

Giuseppe Sannino: “We used up a lot of energy in the first 45 minutes and lost our balance a little. Towards the end, we paid the price for that.”

Antonio Conte: Comments

Udinese 2-0 Fiorentina

Francesco Guidolin: “I want to give credit to the team and I am happy, but we can still improve. Antonio Di Natale was sharp and the defence has been strong for a while.”
