Semplici: 'SPAL deserved more'

Leonardo Semplici felt SPAL “would’ve been disappointed with a draw, let alone defeat” to Fiorentina, as they wasted too many chances.

“If you miss that many scoring opportunities, then it becomes difficult to get a positive result,” confessed Semplici to Sky Sport Italia.
