Corvino: 'Fiorentina, results matter!'

Fiorentina director Pantaleo Corvino assures there was no “summit” for Paulo Sousa, but “the team must realise the final result is important.”

The Viola visit fourth-placed Atalanta today, follow the action as it happens on the Liveblog.

“We must find the right motivation, because there are another 12 games to play,” Corvino told Mediaset Premium.

Fiorentina are out of the Europa League and Coppa Italia, trailing far behind in the race for European qualification.

“When you are winning 2-0 and there’s not long to go, you have to bring home the points. We need to start from these considerations to do the best that we can.

“I hope the team realises that the final result is important. The side tries to win, but for a series of reasons, it doesn’t quite work all the way to the end.”

Is there truth to reports that the club held a summit to set deadlines for whether Sousa would be sacked?

“No, there was no summit.”
