(ANSA) – VERONA, AUGUST 28 – Gabriele Cioffi does not seem too demoralized by the defeat suffered by Verona against Atalanta. “We are happy with the performance and much less happy with the result – admits the Gialloblù coach -. To say that we could have gone out with a draw or a win seems excessive to me, they have had the opportunity to close it several times. But we start from an attitude that we have reconfirmed. after Bologna and that we have improved, then I have to review the game in terms of play and ideas. There has been a step forward and I am satisfied with this. “
Cioffi confirms that “in the first half especially our forwards found themselves well, even between the lines and there was the feeling that the goal could arrive. In the second half there was more Atalanta. The goal? I saw it again, but I don’t think the defense is responsible for it, which has risen. There it is just an open ball with a shot from 25-30 meters. The mistake has been made, we accept the defeat. We are learning, but we want to start scoring “.
Gian Piero Gasperini analyzes Atalanta’s victory.
“Very bad first half, then it was necessary to change form – he underlines -, we had tried the solution during the week. The first half was not of quality, despite having defended with order. In the second half it went better and in the end a An important victory. Right result? Lazovic is the Verona player who has created the most problems for us. If you leave the result open, you also risk scoring. But we found huge spaces, a team like ours should have closed it. hard”.
According to the coach of the Dea, “it’s a good victory against a Verona that perhaps needs to regain its own physiognomy. It has changed a lot, it fits. Atalanta? Three players arrived in the last ten days. Lookman had done well in the clips in he had entered, maybe today he was a bit excited, he lost a lot of balls, and even for that we weren’t able to restart in the first half.
Ederson was not in the best conditions, but today’s 45 ‘will give him a hand to recover “. (ANSA).
