Pecchia: ‘We can do it’

Verona Coach Fabio Pecchia insists he has ‘great faith’ in his players to achieve Serie A survival after their 2-1 win over Torino.

The Scaligeri secured a crucial and surprising victory against Walter Mazzarri’s Europa League chasers, thanks to Mattia Valoti’s brace.

It means the Stadio Bentegodi side remain second-bottom of the table but are now just two points shy of safety.

“It was a great victory. We suffered for it and we deserved it,” Pecchia told reporters post-match.

“The table has tightened up, but there is still a lot of football to play.

“We need to keep believing we can stay up, it is still there to be taken. I have great faith in my group, we can do it.”

Pecchia reserved special words of praise for match-winner Valoti.

“Valoti? I am happy for him, he has the ability to arrive in front of goal and be dangerous.”
