The words of Eugenio Corini in the post-Cagliari-Palermo

Palermo came out of the Sardegna Arena defeated 2-1 in a match conditioned by the expulsion at minute 57 of Ivan Marconi. On the episode and the performance of his boys Eugenio Corini spoke to the press microphones.

“We played a great game against a worthy opponent who is very difficult to beat at home. We took the field with personality, but unfortunately we got a goal in our best moment. The expulsion affected the match, but even a draw would not have affected what we have to do on Friday,” the Rosanero coach began.

“On the expulsion I have my own idea, Lapadula interrupted the run of Marconi, who was then forced to foul. I do not intend to criticize the decision because Valeri is a very good and competent referee. However, in my opinion they committed the first foul,” added the coach of the Sicilian team about the controversial episode.

“For us it will be important to get to the playoffs in top form. It will also be a pleasure to meet Cagliari again, but regardless of the opponent we will have to take the field with the right mentality,” Eugenio Corini concluded.
