'Fiorentina bigger flops than Inter'

Delio Rossi takes the self-deprecating route ahead of Sunday’s lunchtime kick-off. “Fiorentina are the biggest disappointment of the season, much more than Inter.”

These two clubs go head-to-head at 11.30am UK time and while the Nerazzurri are on their third Coach and still in with a slim chance of Champions League qualification, the Viola are trying to avoid the drop.

“Are Inter a disappointment? I don’t know, but Fiorentina are certainly the biggest disappointment of the season. We’ve done worse than anyone else considering the expectations. At least Inter have a chance of climbing back up the table.

“Tomorrow we will play with Alessio Cerci and Adem Ljajic in attack, because I have no other options,” confessed the Coach.

Stevan Jovetic has been ruled out with a thigh problem, joining the suspended Amauri.

“We have problems and are in an emergency situation, but I won’t sit here crying about it. Riccardo Montolivo is also not very well, but has given the all-clear to play.

“I hope the lads can bring out some more energy than usual. A victory would bring back a more relaxed atmosphere to the club.

“Many times against Inter a good performance is not enough, as they are much stronger than we are.”
