Dragowski: 'I prefer making saves'

Bartlomiej Dragowski described the most difficult saves he had to make against Genoa and insisted he prefers being under siege in the Fiorentina goal.

The Viola had won three on the bounce between Serie A and Coppa Italia, but were held to a 0-0 draw this evening.

“I don’t know if this is a step backwards. We knew this would be tough, because Genoa really need points too,” the Poland international told Sky Sport Italia.

“You can’t win every match. Fortunately, we did not concede a goal and it was our third clean sheet in a row, so that is positive.

“There’s the Coppa Italia coming up with Inter and we want to win that. It’s good that we are more solid at the back, but need to score more goals too.”

Dragowski had to make several extremely difficult saves, including a Domenico Criscito penalty – a man who had never failed to convert a spot-kick in his entire career.

“Every save was tough, but for me these games are easier. The tough ones are when you have nothing to do for a long time and can lose concentration.

“Penalties are always difficult, because it’s just you against the taker, nobody can help you out. I had studied Criscito, of course, as he is their penalty taker.”
