Semplici: 'I don't believe in bad luck'

Leonardo Semplici said Cagliari have ‘our destiny in our own hands’ after another setback against Hellas Verona. ‘We must think about our path’.

The Casteddu created enough chances to give Ivan Juric’s men problems, but it ended in a 2-0 defeat at the Sardegna Arena and the situation is getting worse for Semplici’s men.

“I don’t believe in luck and bad luck,” Semplici told DAZN. “I believe in the abilities of the lads.

“Even today, the game was right in terms of mentality. We create a lot.

“Only through these performances you can turn things around. Let’s hope the wind changes.”

But it was another defeat and a chance for Torino the create a gap down to Cagliari in the relegation zone when they face Juventus tonight.

“The defeat weighs a lot,” Semplici continued. “But when I arrived, I expected such a situation.

“We create a lot but then unfortunately the little we give away punished us.

“There’s disappointment, we miss the most important thing, which is the result. We have to believe in it and be convinced of the work we do during the week.

“That’s the only way we can get out of it.”

When Semplici was asked if he will watch the Derby della Mole, he said the Rossoblu can’t look at the others and must concentrate on themselves.

“Our destiny is in our own hands,” he said. “We must think about our path without looking too much at the other teams.”
