Zeman: "We needed a win today"

The Giallorossi coach had this to say after today’s victory against Atalanta: “What was more important today, the result or the team’s performance? You already know what I think about this but we have to suffer first and then learn our lesson before we start playing well. The Turin match knocked us off course. The exclusion of three of our key players? I have always said that all of my players are able to play, but I can only play eleven players at a time and today I selected the ones you saw. I don’t dispute the fact that De Rossi, Osvaldo and Burdisso are among the best we can field.”
