Di Natale: Viola value Vincenzo

Udinese’s Antonio Di Natale thinks Fiorentina should do all they can to keep hold of Coach Vincenzo Montella.

The tactician has guided the Viola to their second consecutive fourth place Serie A finish, as well as the final of the Coppa Italia.

Speaking to La Nazione, the 36-year-old was asked about the job his friend Montella has done in Florence, as well as the loyalty he has shown to his own club.

“I think in football today it’s difficult to stay with one club for many years,” Di Natale said.

“I have had different chances to leave Udinese but every time I decided to stay, so it’s not impossible.

“I think Fiorentina know full well how good Montella is, so they will do what they can to keep hold of him.

“With Gomez and Rossi in the team, they would have been able to fight for third place.”
