Montella: 'I can't play Ljajic if...'

Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella warns he is willing to drop Adem Ljajic. “I can’t play him if he’s not calm.”

The striker’s contract expires in June 2014 and he has reportedly already agreed personal terms with Milan, but the club rejected an offer worth €8m.

“If I was 22 years old and in Ljajic’s situation, I’d have done worse than him. At his age, you want everything,” Montella told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The important thing is that he rediscovers his calm. I can’t play him if he’s not calm. At the age of 22, you don’t accept being on the bench.”

Meanwhile, Fali Ramadani has clarified that he is still Ljajic’s agent after reports he’d been replaced. “The story I am no longer Ljajic’s agent is absolutely not true.”
