Cagliari coach 'worried and disappointed' after loosing to Fiorentina

Sun 10 January 2021 | 23:42

Cagliari coach Eusebio Di Francesco admits his team 'have every reason to be worried' after the fourth back to back loss; however, Fiorentina 'were by no means superior' in the match.

The 51-year-old manager is unavoidably under stress right now, while Joao Pedro got the opportunity to put the Islanders ahead with the spot-kick, but Bartlomiej Dragowski saved it. 

On the other hand, Jose Callejon moved away down the right area and set up Dusan Vlahovic and


's decisive goal. 

“When you come to Florence, miss a penalty, play with great temperament and run very few risks at the back, it’s very frustrating to leave empty-handed,” Di Francesco said.

“We just need a turning point, it shouldn’t take much, and this felt like the right opportunity to do that. It’s a real pity, as the result was within our reach. There are a lot of regrets.

“I am happy with the performance, but we lost again and I don’t know what more we can do. I am tired of not picking up points when we play well.”

After four successive setbacks, Cagliari are currently just two points away from the

Serie A

drop zone.

“Of course I’m worried, I have every reason to be worried, because we cannot be in this position,” confessed Di Francesco.

“I am worried and disappointed. We need to win a few games to get back on our feet. Fiorentina were by no means superior to us this evening and that is what is truly frustrating.”
