The side were desperate to claim all three points and boost their UEFA Champions League hopes, but slumped to a 3-2 reverse.
Pedretti was forced to sit out the contest and watch from the sidelines and was bitterly disappointed with what he witnessed from his colleague.
"After the match against Caen, I felt a lot of pique and bitterness. It was a big disappointment," explained Pedretti.
"Now we have to stop being afraid, if not we will finish in 7th or 8th place and we don't want that.
"Against Caen, I was in the stands and I felt it was played so slowly. I asked around me and people replied it is always like that.
"So indeed, from the stands it is frightening. We can understand the fans' unhappiness. We have not a good enough state of mind to reach the three first places.
"So we will try to get everyone moving and win the last matches. I want to play in the Uefa Cup next season.
"I am keen to make things improve, even if I have trouble, which is not a matter. The most important is the results."
