Montella: 'Fiorentina can do more'

Vincenzo Montella was not satisfied with Fiorentina’s win over Estudiantes. “We can do more.”

The Viola began their South American tour with an impressive 1-0 victory in La Plata decided by a Mario Gomez strike on Federico Bernardeschi’s assist.

“It was a good performance from those two, but we can do better in the connection throughout the game,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“It was certainly a great match, perhaps Estudiantes did something more, but I liked the spirit of the team and that’s what really matters at this stage of pre-season.

“Estudiantes have many talented players and some of them could end up in Italy.”

Fiorentina have secured a deal for Jose Maria Basanta, although the Argentina international defender is still on his post-World Cup vacation.

“Basanta only needs to undergo his medical. He is a very balanced and consistent player who will certainly be of use to Fiorentina.”
