Italiano: 'Spezia create enough chances'

Vincenzo Italiano doesn’t believe Spezia have attacking problems, despite scoring only twice in three games.

After leaving the pitch goalless in a 2-0 defeat to Genoa last time, Italiano stressed the Aquilotti continues to create enough chances.

The coach quashed the reports of an alleged attacking decline ahead of Saturday’s match against Hellas Verona.

“I don’t think so. Even in the last match we created the chances to be transformed into goals,” Italiano said at a press conference.

Spezia sit 15th in Serie A after 33 games and have scored 42 goals, as many as bottom-placed Crotone, who have only picked up 18 points this term.

But Italiano believes Spezia had enough chances to give the Grifone difficulties last time.

“We created three or four in the first half, when we could have hurt Genoa,” he said. “I think it’s normal, the more you create, the more chances you can have.

“It’s not easy, but I believe that in the finishing and in the last step, as well as concreteness, in the last five games, we must try to be different.

“We must have more quality, be more eager and determined in sending a teammate through on goal.

“We create situations, but we must be more concrete.”
