Montella: 'I won't sleep tonight'

Vincenzo Montella “won’t sleep tonight” after a 2-2 draw with Atalanta, but feels Fiorentina have done well in a tough fixture list.

The Viola are propping up the Serie A table with just two points and are without a win in 18 Serie A rounds.

They had been 2-0 up against Atalanta, but allowed a comeback to 2-2 in the final seconds of the match.

“We played against Napoli, Juventus and Atalanta, so the top three from last season, and we played very well against all of them,” insisted Montella on Sky Sport Italia.

“We deserved something more from all of those games, so we should be given credit for an incredibly tough opening few rounds.

“If we are able to force a side like Atalanta to score at the last second for an equaliser, it means we are not doing badly. I won’t sleep tonight, but at the same time I have to look at the overall journey of this Fiorentina team and say we are on the right track.

“It’s very complicated once it gets to the final seconds and I was forced into some substitutions by fitness problems. We know Atalanta are so good at comebacks.

“I have to look at the positives, as the team was solid for most of the game.”
