Semplici: 'SPAL can survive'

Leonardo Semplici remains “convinced SPAL can secure Serie A survival” after their 2-0 defeat to Inter. “We knew it’d be difficult today.”

The deadlock was only broken late on by Matteo Politano and Roberto Gagliardini, both redirecting wayward efforts.

“We had started strong, including the second half, but then the situation on the opening goal took our confidence away,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“At the end, we lacked the sharpness to make the most of our opportunities. I am convinced SPAL can secure survival playing like this, but we knew it’d be difficult today.

“Hopefully, we’ll have Manuel Lazzari back for the next game.”
