Montella: 'Not best performance'

Vincenzo Montella concedes Fiorentina didn’t play their best football despite beating Udinese in the Coppa Italia.

The Viola won 1-0 at the Stadio Friuli to set up a Quarter-Final match with Roma, but were under siege during the final stages.

“Let’s just say compared to other games we did not play well, but the desire to get a result was the same,” said Montella.

“Udinese did well and created scoring opportunities, but we were clinical and I really liked the way the team approached it.

“We hope David Pizarro can recover soon, as he had a problem in the warm-up, but it didn’t seem serious.”
