Serie A TIM


Coach Cesare Prandelli speaks ahead of the home clash with Spezia, on Matchday 23 in Serie A.

ON THE MATCH - "We must have even more determination. Performance aside, the results aren't coming. We need a great performance against a team that plays good football. They won against the great Milan, we have some concerns but I think we will have a good match. We must play our game and get the three points. We need points, we're fighting to avoid relegation and the players know it."

ON INDIVIDUALS - "Vlahovic deserves the praise. We are trying to improve those details that can also be useful to the team. He and Kouame must make the runs. Kokorin arrived and we started to do some physical work. He is still not at his best for sure."

ON THE TRANSFER WINDOW - "We tried to get the players we needed, we don't have a short bench."

ON VINCENZO ITALIANO - "When I arrived [as a coach] in Verona [20 years ago] he was a kid, but after a few weeks I started him. He is building a well-deserved career. The compliments he is receiving are well deserved."
