Toni: 'Secret to Fiorentina's success'

Luca Toni reveals the secret to third-place Fiorentina’s success. “We have fun with Vincenzo Montella and work our socks off too.”

The Tuscans flew into third position on a par with Inter after their 3-0 demolition job in Palermo.

“If we finish the first half of the season with 38 points and victory over Pescara, then it’ll mean we’re right up there challenging for Europe,” said the veteran striker.

“Juventus are practically in their own tournament, but we are in there battling with the others for the remaining places.

“We do a lot of training with the ball under Montella, so we have fun and work our socks off too.

“I hope a great player can arrive in January, one capable of giving us the step up in quality. I don’t know if it’ll be a forward or not, the important thing is that he helps the team.”
