Hellas Verona coach Di Francesco frustrated after Sassuolo defeat

Hellas Verona coach Eusebio Di Francesco admitted frustration after defeat to Sassuolo.

Sassuolo won on Saturday 3-2. Verona were down to 10 men before half-time, as Veloso received two bookings, but still pushed it all the way with a Mattia Zaccagni brace.

“I want to congratulate my lads for the spirit, mentality and the opening 30 minutes, where we created lots of chances that we didn't make the most of," the coach told DAZN.

“We knew that Sassuolo had a lot of quality and could hurt us, but we were a little unlucky on the first goal with that deflection. We certainly deserved more from this game.

“I also doubt the decision to send Miguel Veloso off, as before his foul, there was a Filip Djuricic tackle that should've been penalised first. It irritated me to lose after we fought so hard, this team did not deserve to lose today.

“Incidents like this can transform a game and I cannot ask for more from my players. We need to maintain this mentality and character, which Verona have had over the last few years."
