“This is football, we created a lot but the goalkeeper was awesome. the 1-0 victories? Always better to win than to suffer”. This is how Roberto Mancini started his interview to Mediaset Premium after the defeat at home against Sassuolo.
In the second half they didn’t have deny chances except a couple of set-pieces. We dominated the game and we tried to win it until the end. The goal came after an unfortunate situation. We took no points but we deserved them. We need to let this one go and go back to work”.
What do you think about Ljajic’s role?
“Today he had almost 5 shots in goal but he was unlucky, with his qualities he can play both on the wing and as second striker.”
Have you grown since Empoli?
“It seems that in that match we played 90 minutes without creating chances, with three or four shots, and the possession were 50-50%, as a match I prefer the Empoli”.
The Transfer Chapter: Are there any chance of seeing Lavezzi and Mertens in Nerazzurro?
“Those kind of players are expensive, I think it would be difficult. Eder? We are talking with Sampdoria regarding Dodò, we haven’t not discussed any other player. We already have great strikers.”
What’s you opinion of the referee and the slap on D’Ambrosio by Berardi?
“Doveri never fails once with us on the pitch. Berardi should have been sent off, there were the referee, linesmen and the fourth of official watching, six eyes and no one saw a thing. As I said Dover never fails with us, just like when we played against Palermo, and it happened with Murillo”.
