David Pizarro admits that Fiorentina are disappointed with the 0-0 draw against Juventus, but believes they made a clear statement to the rest of Serie A.
The Viola had the better of the chances at the Stadio Franchi on Tuesday evening, but the Old Lady held on for a point.
“There is disappointment,” the Chilean playmaker noted. “We wanted the three points, but we just couldn’t find a goal.
“Nevertheless, we are on the right road. Today was an important test to see at what point we are at in our development.
“This is a new side and to have put Juventus in such difficulty is certainly something important for the future of Fiorentina.
“Over the summer, slowly but surely, important players arrived and the enthusiasm increased. There is a great environment here and an excellent squad.”
Fiorentina are currently fifth in the table after collecting eight points from five games.
