Rolando Maran concedes Chievo owe a debt of gratitude to 38-year-old goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino for their goalless draw with Roma.
“You are always going to be under pressure and allow chances when playing against Roma,” confessed the Coach on Mediaset Premium.
“I asked the lads to fight it out and they did create chances, we could even have taken the lead when Roberto Inglese hit the crossbar. Everything we didn’t do at San Siro, we found again today.”
The result was needed after a 5-0 defeat to Inter last week and the two performances could not be more different.
“Every now and then, you get an off day. It doesn’t happen to us often and we saw more of what the real Chievo is today. Unfortunately, we’ve conceded a lot of goals recently and they make the difference.
“Admittedly, the goalkeeper gave us a big hand today. His secret is that Sorrentino is a great professional with real fire.”
