Rossi: 'Fiorentina not safe yet'

Delio Rossi enjoyed Fiorentina’s victory in Rome, but warns “we are not safe yet. We cannot afford arrogance.”

The Viola are still in the fight to avoid relegation, but caused a huge upset today when winning 2-1 at the Stadio Olimpico.

“We deserved to win against Inter last week and in other occasions went close, but this time we achieved the result,” said the Coach.

“I am happy for the lads, who gave so much today. Roma played with grit and pride, but the great thing about football is that there are two teams playing and they faced a determined Fiorentina.

“We have put another brick in the foundation of our safety, but we are not safe yet. We cannot afford arrogance.

“Fiorentina must maintain a workmanlike attitude and until we are safe I won’t feel happy.”

Amauri was a substitute, but also went off before the final whistle with a suspected groin strain.

“It could be a more serious problem than expected for Amauri. Alessio Cerci wasn’t in great shape beforehand, so the moment I saw he stopped running, I replaced him.”
