The victory at the Stadio Franchi was sealed by Roberto Inglese, who nutmegged goalkeeper Alban Lafont.
“We did what we needed to do, considering the quality of the opponents and how strong they are on home turf, so the lads took the right approach,” the tactician told Rai Sport and Sky Sport Italia.
“If we are to achieve our objective of staying in Serie A, then we need to learn how to suffer. If you try to play Fiorentina on the same level, you’re going to struggle for a result.
“I have players who give their best on the counter-attack, so these are the situations we try to exploit.”
Fiorentina boss speaking after the 1-0 defeat at home to Parma said: ” It was not his best and luckiest day, ” said Pioli, ” even the recovery was 8-9 minutes, maybe we would not have tied but we were in the second half, but we lost because of our fault.
“we did not have to give an opportunity like that. Going against them has made them close, even if the team has also created ten against 11. Today did not have to take a goal, it was the most important thing of the day. But we did not succeed. Then again:
” We made technical mistakes, in such a difficult game at the tactical level there were few chances to be dangerous. We pulled towards the door many times, but there was no quality in the shot or in the pass. And in the two episodes that decided the match, Hugo’s goal and red, we made mistakes “.
