Como’s debut in the Italian Cup was not lucky, with Spezia winning 5-1 at the Picco stadium. Here is Mister Jack Gattuso’s comment in the press room at the end of the match:
“We knew it would not be an easy match, playing against a team of a higher category becomes complicated especially if you allow yourself space and favorable situations. Unfortunately we disunited after the 2-1 penalty and then fatigue took over which took away the energy to keep the level high. However, there are several positive aspects: we held the field for 60 minutes, playing with a new system that we have been trying for a short time. We get back to work immediately, analyzing the positive as well as the negative aspects in order to be ready for the championship ”.
Mister Gattuso then went on to analyze the performance of Blanco, who scored the goal of the Larians: “Alex certainly had a good match, he played in a different role compared to last season but for the qualities he possesses he can cover him giving us quality”.
