Iachini: 'Fiorentina on right track'

Beppe Iachini believes Fiorentina “are on the right track, but have real margin for improvement” after their 2-0 win away to Napoli.

The Viola are truly back on track since Iachini replaced Vincenzo Montella, as they’ve now won two Serie A games on the bounce and knocked Atalanta out of the Coppa Italia midweek.

Federico Chiesa and substitute Dusan Vlahovic scored the goals at the Stadio San Paolo in this evening’s 2-0 victory over Napoli.

“The lads did so well in their third game in a week, so we had to be organised, have the right attitude and the lads were exhausted by the end, but put in the performance they needed to bring home an important victory,” Iachini told DAZN.

“They played with heart and we saw the fruits of our labour in these first couple of weeks working together. We’re on the right track and hope to keep improving.

“We are doing better filling the box with more players going forward, although we need to finish the chances more accurately now that we’re getting bodies in the penalty area.

“The lads are doing double training sessions and video work too, so we’re making the right movements, even if sometimes we don’t have the energy to get there in time. That will come, we’ve been together for 18-19 days and have real margin for improvement.

“We must improve in terms of intensity and stamina, but in the meantime, it was important to keep the team tight and ensure we didn’t have to run too much for the positive transitions that way.”
