'Fiorentina want Champions League'

Giuseppe Rossi has claimed that Fiorentina are aiming for a Champions League place this season.

The Viola just missed out on a top three finish last time out, but the striker has insisted that playing in Europe’s top-tier club competition is their goal for 2014-15.

“Fiorentina want the Champions League,” he told reporters at a Vodafone event in Florence.

“But to do this we have to work hard in pre-season. We still have six weeks to prepare for the new season but we’re motivated to do well.

“Let’s see what happens in the transfer market.”

The Italy international then commented on his own fitness, after missing out for the majority of last season with injury.

“I can’t wait to play to be honest. I am doing my own custom programme at the moment, but I feel great.”
