Giuseppe Sannino warns Siena to forget their Coppa Italia exploits and focus on the lunch-time derby with Fiorentina.
Robur made history this week when beating Chievo 1-0 to reach the semi-final for the first time in their history, where they will face Napoli.
“We must forget what happened in the Coppa Italia, otherwise we risk paying a heavy price for it,” said the Coach ahead of today’s 11.30am UK time kick-off.
“It is going to be a difficult game and I’d hate for the ‘real’ Fiorentina everyone was expecting this season to suddenly appear. Their quality level is much higher than the position they currently hold in the table.
“The Viola have also changed during the transfer window with new players like Amauri, while they are fired up and eager to prove themselves after a negative period.
“In turn, we have a clear objective from this match and that is to move up the standings. My lads have to go above and beyond the call of duty out of respect for our fans and ourselves.”
