Vincenzo Montella promised to “learn the Siena club anthem off by heart if they stop Milan” on Sunday in the race for third place.
“I believed when we were six points behind, so now we believe more than ever. We are very relaxed going into the last round,” declared Coach Montella as he was given the Briglia d’Oro award.
The Viola are two points behind the Rossoneri in the fight for a Champions League spot and it will be decided on Sunday night.
Fiorentina visit Siena, while Milan play in Pescara. A victory will secure Milan’s qualification, but if the two teams finish level on points then the Tuscans will go through thanks to a superior head-to-head record.
“Third place is not my last thought at night, nor is the transfer market. From Monday I will start thinking about a summer vacation.
“What would I do to get third? I’d learn the Siena club anthem off by heart if they managed to stop Milan! We have to focus on winning at Pescara, then we’ll see what the Rossoneri do in Siena.
“As for my future, there will be no surprises. I will certainly be the Viola Coach next season.”
