Bernardeschi: ‘Spurs game huge’

Federico Bernardeschi says tomorrow’s match against Tottenham is “one of the most important of my career”.

Fiorentina welcome the English side to Artemio Franchi tomorrow in the first leg of their Europa League Last 32 tie.

“We started from Moena [the pre-season training camp] together and if we’ve got to this point it means we deserve it,” Bernardeschi explained in the pre-match Press conference alongside Coach Paulo Sousa.

“We have to fight to progress in Europe. They have great players, with a strong and deep squad. It’ll be a tough game, but we’ll give our all to get a result.

“It’s a very important match, definitely one of the most important of my career, but I’m sure there will be more.

“I’ve been here for 12 years, I really feel a sense of belonging to Florence. It’s something I feel inside that I’ll always carry with me.

“I’m 22, I have several years ahead of me. The important thing is to stay healthy and do well.”
