In the post-match conference, Luciano Spalletti shared his view on the match as he declared:
"This kind of game can be dangerous if you do not play the right way - in the first half we were not smart but in the second half we outgrew the opponent's energy and we could cause them trouble."
When asked about Keita Baldé, Spalletti said:"He's a great player, he has a great sense of humor and is very appreciated in the group, we have great attackers but unfortunately we cannot play them all at the same time." Spalletti also highlighted Nainggolan's performance as he brought "a control on the midfield and over the intensity of play".
As of his expectations of 2019, Luciano Spalletti said: "In 2019 we look forward to playing strongly in the Italian league, as well as the Italian Cup and the European Championships. We have to offer our best to lift titles."
