Coach Joe Montemurro commented on the 3-0 win over Chievo. Goals from Barbara Bonansea, Arianna Caruso and Cristiana Girelli led the Bianconere to a 6-0 win over the two legs of the Coppa Italia quarter final.
“I'd asked the girls to keep control of the match and that's precisely what they did. We worked on two or three things today, some things that we needed to put right.
"Duljan? Her qualities are there for everyone to see. We are working a lot together because this is her first adventure abroad, but in recent weeks she has matured and grown a lot. She had a small injury the past few weeks and has also been very professional in managing her recovery. I liked Nyström a lot, she held up play well, which let the midfielders and wingers in and she was good at bearing the pressure too. She is a very smart player. Simon needs playing time, but she has very important qualities.
"The 3-4-3 is an evolution, I want to be able to vary formation in the game according to our needs. We will evaluate what's best against Fiorentina, I am confident, I have enormous faith in my team and there are still 30 points and many head-to-heads still to play. Now we're angry, but not because of episodes or defeats, we're angry with ourselves because we lowered our attention. We have to use these episodes to grow and know that we must always be at our top level."
