"If we did not play as we wanted then credit has to go to Modena, we were made to fight for this point by them, this year the league will be a lot more difficult and these are the kind of tough games we can expect every week, we must give absolutely everything each week. Even though we didn't play as we wanted I feel we still played well as a team and had the correct mental approach to the game"
Parma again showed some flaws tonight?
"We still have work to do, remember we are at the beginning, eventually everything will come together and be automatic. They are a good team and not an easy one for us to start with"
Today you seemed to suffer a lot in terms of pace, why? in your opinion.
"True, but look at it, today they only had one or two goal scoring opportunities so I think we were fine. Remember we were playing away from home and a point away at Modena is not to be sneezed at."
Modena are not going through a very good time at the moment though are they?
"Maybe, but they tried hard as did we, both teams had chances they however did not even manage a shot on goal in the first half."
Do you see similarities between this game and the beginning of last season against Arzignano?
"The beginning of this season is similar, we all know though that the championship is won in the second round of games as we know the teams better, we are also in a much better condition. Today we approached the game with the right attitude, obviously we need to improve but we are on the right track."
What is the thing you liked least about tonight's game?
"I find that hard to answer, we are only in the first game and we are still not at our best, maybe the result as we would have liked a win."
