Pescara boss Cristiano Bergodi was full of praise for Mattia Perin after his performance in victory over Fiorentina.

Perin, who is owned by Genoa, underlined his ability with a string of fine saves in the shock 2-0 win.

"It was an exceptional result," Bergodi told Radio Anch'io Lo Sport. "However, we only stayed in the game because of Perin.

"Mattia is a great 'keeper, but he is one of our youngsters and with players of this age it is not easy to escape relegation.

"He, however, is doing well - even if his displays can be a little inconsistent.

"He's an interesting kid, who has great qualities and who could have a great career ahead of him."
