Lorenzo Pellegrini’s lone goal on 58 minutes condemned the Mastini to a nineteenth defeat Serie A this season.
”It is a situation which has happened to us too often,” the former Juventus coach told Rai Sport.
“In order to win we have have to score a goal and in a season like this we have lost games by fine margins. We were attentive and dignified but it is shame that we will be going down to Serie B.”
The defeat coupled with Frosinone’s 3-3 draw away from home at AC Milan means that Verona now cannot finish in any position other than 20th.
