Davide Ballardini said Genoa did not deserve to lose against Bologna, but “creating chances is futile if we aren’t determined enough.”
The Grifone saw their run of three consecutive victories come to an end with this 2-0 result at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
“Genoa must do everything with the utmost intensity and focus,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“We didn’t do badly today and didn’t deserve to lose, but Genoa must also do much more. We created three or four scoring opportunities, but they are futile if we aren’t determined enough.
“Goran Pandev is a player of great class, humility and generosity. We are very happy to have him in the squad and in such form. He is the first to play well and help the defence.
“A setback can happen and it ought to do us good, because it confirms that if we don’t do things at full pelt, we’ll get slapped in the face.”
