‘Viola can’t wait for Juve’

Fiorentina’s Massimo Ambrosini says his side cannot wait for their Europa League tie with Juventus to resume on Thursday.

The Viola hold a slender advantage from the first leg, having scored an all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at Juventus Stadium last week.

“We can’t wait to play the match,” Ambrosini said to Tuttosport. “The mood is still calm and that can be an advantage for us.

“Juve are built to play at a high level in every competition.

“The level of their squad and the quality of their players is the best.

“They are a group who can strike fear into opposition but in a one off match anything can happen, we must be very careful but also brave.

“Tevez could make the difference, he is a player who is used to playing in these sorts of games.”

The 36-year-old was also asked about his future at Artemio Franchi.

“The club knows my desire very clearly, we need to discuss it.”
