“It was difficult because Chievo were defending well. In the first half, we tried to move them from one side to the other to create spaces," the Coach told Mediaset Premium.
“Obviously, it was simpler after they went down to nine men, even if we lost a little balance towards the end and didn't realise there was still half an hour to go. We kept a clean sheet, got the three points away from home and are happy with that.
“I took Kwadwo Asamoah off, as he was on a yellow card and I was concerned he could get a second booking.
“We were struggling to find some width in the first half and also should've upped the tempo, but we had this slow passing that allowed Chievo to get back into position.
“This game is proof that you have to earn the result on the field, no matter who you are against or how many players, because there was that one incident where we were positioned badly, unbalanced and Szczesny did well to rush off his line.
“We have to improve a great deal when it comes to the tempo, learning when to slow it down or speed it up, as otherwise we become too predictable."
