Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa is saddened his team was only able to get a 1-1 draw with Verona.
“We knew this was a delicate moment, particularly due to the loss to Roma which did not meet our expectations. Today we wanted to play quality football, however we we did not succeed and we dropped points. We lacked a bit of luck on Kalinic’s last shot. Now we must work harder to return to our usual selves.”
“This negative period is combination of several things. We didn’t play well against Hellas, but we must continue to believe in ourselves. A culture of winning also goes through dark periods.”
“I am a bit sad, we didn’t do what we know how to do today. We wasted a victory. I did not think we would perform so below our standards, notwithstanding the absences. “
Fiorentina are now in fourth place with Inter, both with 54 points and five points behind third place Roma. They will look to rebound against Frosinone on matchday 30.
