His post match comments went like this:

"The tie is still alive and my team need a big game in Turin. Arsenal were very lively tonight, especially coming into the game after nine days without playing a match. That's not a justification for our performance but it was clear.

"In the first half we played as well as Arsenal until we conceded the goal, but after the goal they got better. It's difficult to play against a team with 10 players behind the line of the ball. There was no space for us.

"I cannot explain Camoranesi's red card. I felt it was clear and he shouldn't have done it, but Zebina was not a red card.I believe he was just late and it wasn't intentional."
