Sampdoria captain Daniele Gastaldello believes his side will come up against one of the best in Italy when they face Fiorentina this weekend.
The Bluerchiati travel to Florence to take the Viola this Sunday, and the 29-year-old defender has claimed that Vincenzo Montella's side will be a tough proposition.
“We have to be up for this game because we will be facing one of the best teams in the League,” he told Il Giornale. “Fiorentina are an extraordinary team.
“I've been really impressed with them. Montella is a great Coach, who I had the fortune of playing with in my first year at Sampdoria.
“He was a fantastic striker, and he's proving to be a very good Coach.”
