Joaquin hails Viola's 'Spanish style'

New Fiorentina midfielder Joaquin has heaped praise on Coach Vincenzo Montella, admitting he has a ‘Spanish style’.

The Viola winger joined this summer from Malaga, and the 32-year-old has conceded his surprise with the tactician's workings.

“I was surprised by Mr. Montella’s methods,” he told Cadena COPE. “The Coach made us work with the ball straight away.

“The style of play is definitely Spanish.

“The squad is competitive and we want to do well in the League and the Europa League.

“Juventus are favourites, but then there is us. We will fight against Napoli.”
