Baroni: 'Frosinone bitterly disappointed'

Frosinone Coach Marco Baroni was “bitterly disappointed” by the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Roma. “We had the chance to win it and really believed.”

The Canarini had in fact taken the lead just five minutes in when Robin Olsen flapped at a Camillo Ciano snapshot, but Edin Dzeko and Lorenzo Pellegrini scored in the space of 72 seconds to turn it around.

Andrea Pinamonti came off the bench to equalise and Marcello Trotta forced a save out of Olsen, but with practically the last kick of the game, Dzeko bundled a Stephan El Shaarawy cross over the line.

“We are bitterly disappointed at this result,” Baroni told Sky Sport Italia and DAZN.

“We’re trying to be more aggressive and not just defend, so the team played really well and caused Roma many problems. There was a moment when we had the chance to win it and really believed when there was that great save on Trotta, but that just increases the regrets, because we should’ve been more concentrated.

“It’s a pity, as we more than deserved at least a point from this game. We need results right now and not just encouraging performances.

“We’ll continue trying to play attacking football and not defend too deep. There were some individual distractions that proved costly this evening. Perhaps there was some inexperience that contributed to the errors and Roma were sharp enough to take advantage.

“If we want to get out of this situation, we need points. A good performance only satisfies me to a degree.”
