Iachini: 'Brescia must believe'

Beppe Iachini tells Brescia “we pay a heavy price for our mistakes, but it is our duty to believe.”

The Rondinelle look to be slipping into Serie B after a 1-0 home defeat to Milan left them five points adrift of the safety zone.

“It is certainly not the first time this has happened to us. We play great games and then pay a heavy price for a few mistakes,” shrugged the Coach following Robinho's late winner.

“We create so much in attack, but cannot seem to translate those chances into goals. We played well today, but right as we were raising the tempo to get a goal, we were caught out on the counter.

“I was asking the lads to stay calm, but we were too hasty and made a serious mistake.”

Brescia now face a head-to-head battle with Sampdoria to avoid relegation.

“It is our duty to believe,” continued Iachini. “There are some head-to-head games left and we've got to keep our heads up, playing with the same intensity and mentality I've seen over the past two and a half months.

“The only thing we've got to improve is being more effective in taking our chances.”
