Fiorentina 'fear their own fans'

Delio Rossi admits Fiorentina “are frightened” of playing in front of their own fans after another disappointing defeat to Chievo.

The Viola handed a 2-1 result at the Stadio Franchi with two defensive howlers and must face the threat of relegation.

“Playing at home when your players are frightened really does not help, as it robs them of energy and focus,” confessed the Coach.

“We play well away from home and still do not pick up the results that we deserve. It’s difficult to do well when there is fear and we need calm, which at the moment is just not here.

“Everyone has to push in the same direction. The common good must come above personal interests.”
