De Silvestri after the game
“We didn’t concede today. It was important that we broke that bad run. I’m happy because we had to sacrifice a lot in the second half. The praise goes to everyone, not just the defence and goalkeeper, who made a brilliant save. Let’s keep this going.
We’re a team with a lot of quality and we need to understand just how strong we can be. We’re growing and if we work with humility, we can cause issues for any team.
This is two consecutive wins [in the league] now and we’re moving forward with more confidence and trust. We have two important games – against Inter and Roma – coming up and we’re going there to play football.
We were hurt by the cup exit; it was a game that we approached all wrong. During the week, the gaffer gave us his thoughts and we took stock of it all. He’ll be happy with the team’s response today. We need to continue like this.”
