On-loan Fiorentina midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has revealed that he wants to win the trust of Coach Vicenzo Montella.
The Mali international has played just three times since his arrival in January from Paris Saint-Germain.
But the 28-year-old has claimed that he wants to use his time on the sidelines as a springboard.
“The bench has been a stimulus for me,” he told La Nazione. “When I am called upon, I will demonstrate I belong amongst the other players.
“Here in Florence I have been received very well. And thanks to my fellow teammates I am getting to know the city very well.”
