Former Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade believes Vincenzo Montella is ‘perfect’ for Sevilla and La Liga.
Montella is set to be appointed as Sevilla’s new Coach, barely a month after leaving Milan, and Prade was asked about the 43-year-old’s suitability in Spain, having worked with him at Fiorentina for three years.
“I always thought that his place was in the Spanish League. We talked about it,” he told ABC de Sevilla.
“Montella’s style of play is perfect for La Liga and even more so for Sevilla, who have players of great quality.
“Fiorentina? He came from Catania, where he did very well. We had three beautiful years in purple together, with three, fourth-place places and a Coppa Italia Final.
“It was something special, and although we had a lot of injuries, the team always sacrificed themselves.
“The players followed Montella blindly and you could see it on the pitch.”
