Vincenzo Montella has admitted that, in the current climate, it is impossible for Fiorentina to win the Scudetto.
The Viola are currently fourth in Serie A, 17 points behind leaders Juventus. But the 38-year-old has conceded that his side cannot compete, financially, with the likes of the Bianconeri.
“The Scudetto is the dream of all the teams,” he told Il Giornale. “But we have to deal with the reality.
“Our revenues cannot compare to those of Juve, Milan, Inter and both Roman teams. Even with Napoli there is a huge hap.
“The gap is dozens and dozens of millions.
“Under these conditions it is impossible for us to win. Our maximum aim is to be in the Champions League places.”
