The Italian press have attacked the coach for the 4-5-1 formation he used against the French side, however Di Livio said: "I think that we should play with one forward only. I really cannot see a different solution, we have too many injured players.
Mancini said: "I have played with one striker only because I only had one! We have eleven players injured."
The coach has also stated that the target for the season is to avoid relegation.
Meanwhile Viola Fans' president Walter Tanturli is starting to have doubts about Mancini, saying: "I can say that our trust in Mancini is not so strong now."
