Iachini: Would've saved Empoli

Beppe Iachini maintains Empoli ‘would’ve stayed up’ if they kept him on but is grateful for the experience.

Empoli announced on Tuesday that they had sacked Iachini after a run of just one win from 12 games, but the former Udinese and Sassuolo boss believes he had more to give to the Tuscans. 

“When I arrived we were on a downer and today the team are safe,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.

“Frosinone are next. I remain convinced that we would’ve stayed up. The team were alive.

“We talked about [conceding so many goals], but on the other hand we’ve scored a few more.

“[Francesco] Caputo is also breaking our goal record. We could’ve saved ourselves in the games against our League rivals.

“Still, I don’t want to stir any controversy: I thank everyone. I felt good at the club, but sometimes football is like that…

“For their commitment and dedication, I say ‘thanks’ to the lads.”

The 54-year-old is set to be replaced by the returning Aurelio Andreazzoli.
