Rossi: 'No excuses'

Delio Rossi concedes Fiorentina “have a lot of work to do” and refused to blame injuries for their defeat to Inter.

The Viola were beaten 2-0 at San Siro, but lost Stevan Jovetic just before kick-off, joining the likes of Riccardo Montolivo, Alessio Cerci and Mattia Cassani.

“There’s no point talking about those who weren’t here. I still think we could’ve done better, as we rarely countered and were too flat in attack,” said the Coach.

“We did better in the second half, but conceding the second goal really knocked the wind out of our sails.

“We have a lot of work to do and the lads are putting in the effort, but we are aware there’s a long way to go. Tonight we lacked the final ball, as our transitions weren’t good enough.

“What can the Viola fans hope for? Right now for a Fiorentina side that plays better, then we can discuss objectives in March.”
