Eusebio Di Francesco acknowledges Fiorentina “are a strong side who did better” than Sassuolo, thanks also to “naïve” mistakes.
The Neroverdi had managed to get back on level terms, but Josip Ilicic’s volley and a ludicrous Andrea Consigli own goal sealed the 3-1 result.
“We faced a strong side who did better that us,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“We did well to get back into it, but naïve to then fall straight back behind. It’s a shame, as towards the end we could’ve done more.
“It was a strange game with that error from Consigli. I am disappointed with the defeat, but we lost to a strong team.”
