Fiorentina midfielder David Pizarro has insisted that Vincenzo Montella is the reason for the club's success this season.
The Viola are currently fourth in Serie A, challenging for the last remaining Champions League.
And the Chile international has claimed that the Coach has instilled a belief in the team, whilst also commenting on Mario Balotelli.
“In Florence we have a large group,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “It has not been easy to play at this level after changing so many players.
“But we are a tight group and that is without doubt down to Mr. Montella.
“He has given this team a soul.
“Balotelli is definitely a good guy. In Manchester we had a great relationship. He has great potential.
“He can win the Ballon d'Or one day.”
