'Cagliari devastating on the counter'

Vincenzo Montella has claimed that his Fiorentina side could come unstuck against Cagliari’s ‘devastating counter-attack’ this weekend.

The Viola go to the Isolani tomorrow afternoon looking for the three points that could take them to within one of Napoli.

But the Tuscan side’s Coach has admitted that his men have to be wary of the Sardinian outfit.

“Cagliari are a mature team,” he told a Press conference. “They’re a side that I like a lot.

“They can be devastating on the counter-attack and have some real quality in their side that are capable of quality.

“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves after recent results. This is football. Sooner or later things will go our way.”

Montella then commented on their recent activity in the transfer window.

“Diakite? We needed a man for that role. Modibo has great physicality. We are absolutely delighted to have brought him in.

“I’m satisfied with what we’ve done in the market. But let’s see what happens.”
