Alberto Giuliani (coach Cucine Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “Trento deserved the win, they played much better than us especially in the block-dig area, which made the difference. I tried to make some changes to disturb them, but I have not been successful. I really feel sorry for the fans and the fact we lose our first place. Let’s remain confident though because we have another big game on Wednesday in Cuneo, a crucial one for our season”.
Radostin Stoytchev (coach Itas Diatec Trentino): “It’s never easy to win in Macerata, the fact we did it means we had a great performance. Tonight we not only did well tactically but also in the other little things you need when you want a great result, like some digs without going for the block. We are obviously very happy, we have to keep playing like that”.
