Rossi: Shame about result, but…

Giuseppe Rossi says Fiorentina are benefiting where it matters most during their tour of South America.

La Viola followed up last weekend’s win over Estudiantes with defeat on Wednesday night to Palmeiras, although their goalscorer against the Brazilians still only sees positives.

“It is a shame about the result, we played a very good game, creating opportunities and fighting for every ball,” Rossi has considered post-match.

“We have found the right team spirit and our condition and this is what counts in this tour. We are happy with our preparations, we can continue like this.

“The chances created? We created many and it is a shame for the lack of goals, but I am sure that in the League we will not hesitate like that.

“My performance? I am trying to play as I do and we will see. I was happy with Babacar up front, we are all happy.”
