Iachini: I would have got Chievo back on track

Former Cheivo manager Beppe Iachini is lamenting the fact that he was sacked from his post.

After leading the Verona club to the Serie B title last season, Iachini could not re-produce his magic and had the club on the bottom of the Serie A table but he believes, if given time, he could have got the job done.

"Chievo weren't lacking anything while I was there," he told Toscana TV.

"We were undergoing a programme of adaptation to Serie A and it is normal to suffer a little.

"We had several injuries and some bad luck that meant we had fewer points than we could have had.

"But I'm convinced that with a bit of patience we would have got back on track - still that's the way football is."
