Vincenzo Montella concedes it was “the perfect Sunday” after Fiorentina’s 3-0 win over Sampdoria, but now awaits an extra gift from Milan.
The Viola temporarily moved into third place awaiting Milan-Catania this evening.
“It was the perfect Sunday,” smiled the Coach. “I was worried about this game, but the team and fans deserve praise. I also thank my old Sampdoria supporters for the warm welcome.
“I will sit down tonight in a very relaxed manner to watch Milan-Catania and enjoy the game. I don’t know what our chances are of Champions League qualification, but we certainly consolidated fourth place today. Then we’ll see.”
Adem Ljajic scored and created in the 3-0 victory against Delio Rossi, the Coach who was fired by Fiorentina after a dugout brawl.
“It was not easy for Ljajic, but he showed his maturity and growth both on the field and off. He focused only on playing, we are happy with him and he represents a treasure for the club.”
