Benevento coach Marco Baroni thrilled with stunning promotion

Benevento coach Marco Baroni is thrilled after leading the minnows to Serie A promotion.

The 1-0 play-off Final victory at Carpi, after a 0-0 first leg result, meant they achieved back-to-back promotions from Lega Pro to the top flight.

“I feel infinite joy, truly," Baroni told Sky Sport Italia. “It's all incredible, but we deserved all of this. We fought hard in these play-offs and we earned our promotion.

“The team is in great shape, the mentality is strong, they deserve the credit. The squad had more possession, more shots on goal, second in terms of passing, they have been excellent all season long and they deserve this.

“I dedicate this to my family, my wife Patrizia and my kids, as they are the most important thing in my life. Then to the President and these remarkable fans."
