Maran: 'Chievo dream'

Rolando Maran did not expect Chievo to be close to the European places after a 1-0 win over Carpi. “In my dreams…”

The Flying Donkeys are remarkably in eighth place, just five points behind powerhouses Milan.

“Did I see ourselves in this position? In my dreams…” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We all strongly wanted to prove we could fight for the points to the end despite having already achieved our objective of safety.

“I think we did prove that. I’m happy Sergio Pellissier got the decisive goal, as he sets the example and deserves credit for all he does on and off the pitch.

“Chievo have a core group of players who are reliable and have been here for a few years. I like that my more experienced players get recognition and would like them to be noticed more in Serie A.

“We are gaining the right mentality to do well and that is a big step forward.”
