Vincenzo Montella praised Fiorentina for their “maturity,” but warned they still need to improve to qualify for Europe.
The Viola were twice pegged back by Genoa, but eventually won 3-2  to consolidate fourth place.
“We have matured compared to the early games this season and are more fluid in our football,” the Coach told Rai Sport.
“These are three important points and we deserved them. It’s a shame we didn’t have the strength to kill off the game, but we still picked our heads up twice to fight back, so I compliment the lads.
“Serie A is still wide open, so we need to rapidly improve our form away from home.”
This was Fiorentina’s fourth consecutive victory and they remain three points off third.
