"We must congratulate Fiorentina because they played a good match. It was a tough game where we suffered on the counterattacks and sometimes we were even lucky, but the team held their shape well and in normal situations we didn't risk much, defending with order and with a high line. We also had favourable situations in which we could have been more dangerous, but winning in Florence is never easy and the team showed signs of maturity, because today we were missing so many players and it was a difficult match. Aké did well too, everyone was good today, but I think Danilo has set an example, proving to be a player of the highest level. Fortunately, Dybala, Rugani and Bernardeschi are back tomorrow and they will bring fresh energy. Now let's put this match aside, because on Sunday we have a very important match against Spezia."
"The Italian Cup is our objective; we must play every game in the same way, the competition makes no difference. Today we showed that we have a strong squad and that we are on the right path. I am very happy for the boys because they worked so hard and sacrificed themselves. The absences were felt, but we showed that we are all prepared and ready to play. Now there is the second match to be played in front of our fans, but I am happy with this victory
"It wasn't an easy match, we knew it, the important thing is to have brought home the result. I'm happy for everyone, we deserved this victory, due to all the difficulties of this period. Now we focus on the championship, where we still have to improve; we have a goal to achieve and it is not easy. This is the phase of the season with many commitments and every one of them is important."
