Fiorentina boss Stefano Pioli acknowledged that his team paid a high price for their mistakes against Chievo Verona as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at the Stadio Bentegodi on Sunday.

"We made too many mistakes to get the result today and I think we got it all wrong mentally," said the Viola coach, speaking after the final whistle. "We started well but I think after we scored we thought it was going to be easy. We lost our tempo and weren’t able to control the game."

Pioli was unable to hide his disappointment at a result that puts an end to an impressive run from Fiorentina.

"This was a result we didn’t want because the team was on the up, but unfortunately it’s part of our development," he said. "Obviously this slows our improvement a bit but it needs to give us something to push on from. We need to work hard during the break, despite the fact that we’ll be without several players. We want to produce a different kind of performance against Udinese at home."
