Rossi fires up Fiorentina

Delio Rossi wants Fiorentina to “learn how to get points against anyone” after a giant-killing spree, as they take on his old club Atalanta.

The Viola have shocked many top clubs in recent weeks, beating Milan and Roma on their own turf as well as holding Inter.

“We must not think about these things. We must learn how to get points against anyone, as we need them to secure safety and it doesn’t matter whether we pick them up against small or big sides.

“Atalanta are the real revelations of the tournament and it will be one of our toughest away games. I spent perhaps the best six months of my career in Bergamo.

“We have to reshuffle due to injuries and bans, but as always make do with what we have.”

Riccardo Montolivo, Amauri, Alessio Cerci, Juan Manuel Vargas, Per Kroldrup and the suspended Artur Boruc.

“I am convinced Neto will go well in goal and the future is on his side. As for Adem Ljajic, if Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo can miss penalties, then so can he. My one concern was that after the miss he stopped playing, whereas he must always fight to improve.”
