Vincenzo Montella was surprised by how well Fiorentina did in their win away to Sassuolo. “I expected a dip in form.”
The Viola struggled to make an impact in the first half, but gradually improved until Giuseppe Rossi’s late strike secured a 1-0 victory.
“In the first half Sassuolo were more aggressive, but then the technique and quality of Fiorentina emerged,” the Coach said in his Press conference.
“Aside from the statistics, I can see that this team plays the same way, whether at home or away. I expected a dip in form at this stage after playing in Serie A and the Europa League, but it didn’t happen. We never got the wrong approach.
“This means the side is made up of great men as well as great players. However, if we want to go further in the Europa League, then we need reinforcements.”
