Pioli: Bologna are still growing
Bologna coach Stefano Pioli isn’t fully satisfied with his squad’s recent win over Brescia and believes they need to make more improvements before their first Serie A match of the new season this weekend.
The Rossoblu defeated Brescia 1-0 in a Coppa Italia match on August 17, with the only goal coming from Alessandro Diamanti in the first half, and the tactician feels the scoreline should have been more dominant.
Pioli spoke to Bologna’s official website about his team’s growth this summer and insisted that they will continue to work hard as they prepare for their opening match of the 2013-14 campaign against Napoli on August 25.
“It was important to go through and get off on the right foot,” said the 47-year-old.
“We are growing. Compared to a week ago, we have improved in both intensity and concentration.
“We had so many situations of numerical superiority that we could have overcome them a lot better.
“Bologna can and should continue growing more this week so we can present our best against Napoli on Sunday.”
