Luigi De Canio, in the mixed zone after the game, commented the match: "Maybe, after our first goal, we broke our concentration. We thought we were dominating the game and we were sure of winning the game. After they leveled, we tried to score again but we were too forward and for them it was easier for them to effectuate counter-attacks".
De Canio added: "We are not physically ready. We tried to win it until the end but we couldn't do it, also if my team's performance was good. Of course penalties are a lottery".
Then the rossoblu manager gave credit to the gilaloblu: "Verona played their game, it was a difficult opponent. Mandorlini's team have the same expectations they had last year and they strengthen their team with excellent signings. I saw them as the favorite team in Serie B to reach promotion".
