Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin cursed their luck after a Coppa Italia home defeat to Fiorentina.
“Football is made up of incidents. We were close to a goal so many times, but conceded basically an own goal down to a deflection that allowed Fiorentina to qualify,” said the Coach.
Borja Valero secured the 1-0 result with a shot that looped over a helpless goalkeeper.
“The Viola are a great side with a young Coach like Vincenzo Montella who will go far. We lacked the requisite clinical edge and sharpness. It’s a shame, but we played well and I think our fans will stand by us.”
