Oddo: Fiorentina defeat hurt

Pescara manager Massimo Oddo admits the defeat to Fiorentina on Wednesday hurt more than the heavy loss at Inter.

Gianluca Caprari gave the Delfini the lead, but Cristian Tello equalised in the 68th minute before scoring a stoppage-time winner for the Viola.

Oddo's charges came into the game after a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Inter, but the Pescara boss feels the 2-1 defeat to Fiorentina was even more difficult to accept.

“I cannot ask for more from this team, because we gave everything and were punished excessively in the circumstances,” Oddo told Sky Sport Italia.

“Losing the way we did today hurts a lot. It hurts too much, far more than the one with Inter. The fans jeered at the end, I understand we’re getting very poor results and protests are understandable, but objectively I think there’s little to jeer today."

Pescara are bottom of the Serie A standings and haven't won a game since August 28.
