Serie A: Post-Match Comments

Catania 4-0 Palermo

Diego Simeone: “We worked hard and played very well. Gonzalo Bergessio scored a wonderful goal. There's a long way to go before we can achieve safety, so we have to stay calm.”

Serse Cosmi: “We didn't think that we would go into such a negative match. At the start we were doing fairly well, but once we conceded the first goal, we just melted into a puddle.”

Cesena 2-2 Fiorentina

Massimo Ficcadenti: “We did well to react after their goal and deserved the equaliser. We'll fight for safety right to the end.”

Sinisa Mihajlovic: “We should've finished off the match when going 2-1 up, but we didn't take our chances. It's not the first time this has happened. We're like boxers who can't do the sucker punch.”

Chievo 0-0 Sampdoria

Stefano Pioli: “It was an intelligent performance and we did our best to win. It was important to add points to the table, even if with a few more goals at home we'd already be safe by now.”

Alberto Cavasin: “We struggle to score, but it was important to interrupt the run of defeats. There were very few scoring opportunities for either side, but it's a positive point.”

Genoa 0-1 Cagliari

Davide Ballardini: “A terrible performance. We ran without any real plan or direction and never got hold of Cagliari. The fans are right to jeer, but we are not already on vacation.”

Roberto Donadoni: “We always try to play the way we did today. The lads were fantastic. My contract renewal? Right now all that counts is ending the season well.”

Lecce 2-0 Udinese

Gigi De Canio: “I think the safety zone is at around 38 or 39 points. The head-to-head confrontations will be decisive. Today my lads approached the game with the right spirit.”

Francesco Guidolin: “It was not a cold shower, as we knew it would be a dangerous game. We must learn something from this defeat and get our feet back on the ground. On the bright side, at least nobody will ask us about the Scudetto now.”

Parma 1-2 Bari

Pasquale Marino: “All the positive things we did over the campaign has been put back in the balance. We should've done more, quite apart from the result.”

Bortolo Mutti: “We must honour this season right to the end, even if our situation is not easy. Today's victory does stoke the fires of our hopes.”
