Nastasic: Viola can overcome Milan

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic believes that his former club Fiorentina can make the Champions League next term.

The Tuscan side are currently fourth in the table, just one point behind Milan with only four games of the season remaining.

And the young centre-back, who joined the Premier League club from the Viola last summer, has insisted that his old team can finish in the top three.

“I will always support Fiorentina in their fight for a Champions League place,” he told

“They can overcome Milan in the standings, certainly.

“Manchester cannot even be compared to Florence in terms of beauty.

“I will always be a supporter. I appreciate the football they have been playing this year.

“In terms of the quality of their play, there has been no rival this year.”
