Serie A: Post-Match Comments

Novara 3-3 Catania

Attilio Tesser: “After the difficult opening 25 minutes we had a great game and there is regret we didn't manage to take home the victory. We reacted very strongly after Francesco Lodi's goal.”

Vincenzo Montella: “I chose the 3-5-2 because I was without any centre-backs apart from Nicola Legrottaglie, who hasn't trained much. I liked the attitude of the team.”

Cesena 0-0 Chievo

Marco Giampaolo: “It was not an easy match after four consecutive defeats. We did more than I expected, to be honest, and have no recriminations about my players.”

Domenico Di Carlo: “Compliments to Cesena, who tried to win right to the 90th minute. Today there was a step backwards in terms of performance, but at least got a point in a relegation head-to-head.”

Palermo 2-0 Siena

Devis Mangia: “We are on the right track and I am above all happy with the clean sheet today. In terms of quality, we will improve with time.”

Giuseppe Sannino: “We come back without any points, as we weren't gritty enough despite dominating possession. We go back home and roll our sleeves up.”

Parma 3-1 Genoa

Franco Colomba: “Sebastian Giovinco is our player with the most quality and so we try to get the best out of him. The whole team played well today, including in defence.”

Alberto Malesani: “Our performances are inconsistent. Today I was angry at the lack of determination, as that stopped us raising our game.”

Fiorentina 1-2 Lazio

Sinisa Mihajlovic: “In the first half it was a balanced encounter, while after the break we paid a heavy price for the one defensive distraction.”

Edy Reja: Comments

Lecce 0-2 Cagliari

Eusebio Di Francesco: “We conceded two goals on the first two chances. I wanted a better reaction. I won't give up, but I expect more grit and character from the team.”

Massimo Ficcadenti: “We thoroughly deserved the 2-0 win with a great first half, as we could've had more than two goals, but also knew how to soak up pressure.”

Udinese 2-0 Bologna

Francesco Guidolin: Comments

 

Pier Paolo Bisoli: “We took some steps backwards in terms of performance. I feel content with the work I have done, but when the results don't arrive then it's only natural the Coach is on the line.”
