‘Viola-Juve bigger than…’

Massimo Ambrosini believes the rivalry between Fiorentina and Juventus is greater than the one between Milan and Inter.

The veteran midfielder, who is currently playing for the Viola, took time out to compare some of his experiences in Florence to those from his time with the Rossoneri.

“The rivalry between Fiorentina and Juve is bigger than the one between Milan and Inter,” Ambrosini said to Radio Blu.

“If we win the Coppa Italia, I would not make a banner as I did against Inter after we won the Champions League against Liverpool in 2007.

“If I could, I would replay the Istanbul final against Liverpool. Even more so because I got injured beforehand and I didn’t play against them.

“Are there similarities between Montella and Ancelotti? Montella is more attentive in terms of preparing for matches. Therefore he seems to me to be more similar to Allegri.

“Matri was unlucky at Milan. He arrived at Milan at a particularly bad time. For a striker goals are everything, but he seems very determined.

“He is 30 years old and he knows how to overcome these periods.”
