Iachini: 'I know Belotti like a son'

Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini urges his side to attack Torino from the beginning, but be wary of Andrea Belotti. ‘I know him like a son.’

“The victory over Lecce was important and the lads deserved that boost. Now we have to keep going along this path,” said Iachini in his press conference.

“Torino are an excellent team who had started the campaign targeting a place in Europe. They’ve been working together for a while, and of course I know Belotti like a son, as he grew up with me at Palermo. We are going to need a great performance.”

The Viola are now unbeaten in four, even if two of those were disappointing stalemates.

“I asked the lads to start strong, be decisive and effective from the very beginning against Lecce. We’d tried that approach many times before, but the difference was that we took the lead this time by converting our chances.

“The squad is very young and we must continue taking the same approach both home and away.”
