Fri 29 January 2021 | 10:51

Spezia coach, Vincenzo Italiano is happy that the club finally "lost with dignity" after a 4-2 defeat against Napoli in the Coppa Italia quarter-final.

The result had been 4-0 by half-time, but Emanuel Gyasi and Gennaro Acampora both scored a goal for Spezia after the break.

“If you get the wrong approach from the start against a great team, you will pay for that mistake,”



“We lost with dignity, and nobody enjoys losing, but we tried to make up for our errors in the second half. We honoured the Coppa Italia and reached the quarter-finals.”

This is 


’s first-ever Serie A season, so they have to focus not to be relegated.

“We’ll see what happens over the next 19 rounds. If we play the way we did in the first half with Napoli, then we’re in trouble. If we play like we did in the second half, then we can survive.”

Goalkeeper Titas Krapikas tried again in goal this evening, so now that Jeroen Zoet has recovered from injury, the coach added:

“Whoever deserves to play will get his chance.”
