Chievo Coach Mimmo Di Carlo blamed the January transfer window for his side losing at least “two matches due to the confusion of the market.”

The Gialloblu have been glued to the foot of the table since the beginning of the season, when they were given a three-point penalty for financial irregularities.
The 55-year-old tactician lamented the fact that four of his players went out and four came in during what was a busy winter transfer market for the Veronese club.
“There was a need to sell, we had to sell before we could buy,” said Di Carlo in his Press conference.
“Unfortunately, those who did arrive in January needed time to adjust and we just didn’t have that luxury. The transfers made us unbalanced in that period, and we lost two matches because of the confusion of the market.
“If everyone is on the market and potentially on their way out the door, it creates nothing but confusion for the team. We had players that weren’t right mentally, they weren’t focused on playing because of the transfer window.”
