Lopez: 'Can't rely on Pavoletti'

Diego Lopez warned Cagliari “need the others to help Leonardo Pavoletti, because we can’t always wait for his goals.”

The Sardinians were beaten 2-1 at the Stadio Bentegodi by Chievo this evening.

“We knew that we had to be wary, as Chievo were desperate for points,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s disappointing, as we could’ve done better, especially in the first half. We had the chances to score, then conceded on a very good Emanuele Giaccherini free kick.

“The important thing was the reaction to going 2-0 down, denied an equaliser only by Stefano Sorrentino. Pavoletti is one of the best strikers in Italy inside the penalty area, but we need the others to help him, because we can’t always wait for his goals.”
