Vincenzo Montella is trying to keep Fiorentina’s feet on the ground after they flew into fourth place with a four-star performance against Cagliari.
The Sardinians had won their last four on the bounce, but capitulated 4-1 at the Stadio Franchi this afternoon.
“Our ambitions? It all depends on the growth that we see in the team from here to the end of the season,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“The side reacted very well after the break, having struggled under Cagliari’s pressure, but the lads proved they really wanted this victory. The win was deserved.”
Stevan Jovetic broke his goal drought and celebrated almost angrily by kicking the advertising boards.
“He was decisive today and I was about to substitute him so he could rest, but then he asked to come off due to a niggle in his knee.
“I don’t know what was behind his reaction to the goal, perhaps it was just taking a weight off his shoulders. I don’t think he was angry.”
