Serie A: Post-Match Comments

Brescia 0-3 Chievo

Mario Beretta: “The lads worked hard, but we didn't do it right on the pitch. Despite the protests I still believe in this squad.”

Stefano Pioli: “These are games that take a lot out of you, but I was certain we'd have played well. Sergio Pellissier is a crucial reference point for the team.”

Cagliari 2-1 Bari

Roberto Donadoni: “Bari had almost been able to get back into the game. It is an important victory, but one that must make us think carefully. For the moment, Alessandro Matri will remain.”

Giampiero Ventura: “The match reflects our entire season, as if we hadn't wasted the penalty, then we would be here talking about another result. We were dreadful for the first 10 minutes.”

Catania 0-2 Milan

Massimiliano Allegri: Comments

Diego Simeone: “Milan did not put us under real pressure, but just as at Parma, we conceded a goal and the game changed from there. Am I worried? Only by injuries.”

Genoa 3-1 Parma

Davide Ballardini: “The first half was very positive and after the break we struggled a bit, mainly because we were tired. All the newcomers have settled in very well.”

Pasquale Marino: “Despite the defeat, we are still five points clear of the drop zone, so there are no problems. The club is working on the market, but I am happy as we are.”

Lecce 1-1 Cesena

Gigi De Canio: “It is a bitter blow to drop two points in stoppages, especially against another of the relegation challengers. We kept them in the game, so it's our fault.”

Massimo Ficcadenti: “In a direct confrontation, every point counts double, so this is a valuable result. After the goal they clammed up, but we were able to find a way through.”

Napoli 4-0 Sampdoria

Walter Mazzarri: Comments

Mimmo Di Carlo: “The first 20 minutes were very good, then we were punished at their first shot on target. It's true various incidents have disturbed the team during this period, but I don't want alibis.”
