Ivan Juric believes their game against Napoli was their best game of the season.

Hellas Verona

won 3-1 against


on Sunday and their coach

Ivan Juric

said that his side played their best game of the season.

“I think it was the best game of the season, it’s never easy to play against Napoli, the guys played very well, it was an extraordinary match,” Juric said.

“We’ve been working well, today we did everything we could. We defended well, we didn’t let them play well. It was such a nice victory,” he added.

“We made some mistakes in the summer, we signed some good players who had picked up injuries over the last couple of years, for this reason, we struggled with physical problems at the beginning of the season.

“Now, the team is interesting. It all depends on us, we must improve and continue like this.”

Federico Dimarco

scored the equalizer in the 34th minute and hugged his coach after his goal.

“He had a bad start, but he recovered and he did very well.”

When he was asked whether he will bring a new striker, he answered:

“I don’t think something will happen. I like Barak, he can play in midfield and in attack, but when he stays up there he can be more dangerous, I like where he plays now.”

Mattia Zaccagni

, who scored the third goal on Sunday, is going to join Napoli at the end of the season.

“Zaccagni is not the best player I’ve coached, but he’s improved so much.

“He is a different player compared to one year and a half ago. He’s always been smart, but he is becoming a leader now, he must continue because he has room for improvement.”
