Federico Bernardeschi is “honoured” by Carlo Ancelotti compliments, but is focused on Fiorentina and their Scudetto push.

“I have only just arrived in Serie A and there’s a very long road ahead of me. I am not worried, as I have faith, constancy, passion and hunger,” the Italy Under-21 international told the Corriere della Sera.

“I give young players the same advice Paulo Sousa gives me: work, work and work some more.”

Federico Bernardeschi is “honoured” by Carlo Ancelotti compliments, but is focused on Fiorentina and their Scudetto push.

“I have only just arrived in Serie A and there’s a very long road ahead of me. I am not worried, as I have faith, constancy, passion and hunger,” the Italy Under-21 international told the Corriere della Sera.

“I give young players the same advice Paulo Sousa gives me: work, work and work some more.”

New Bayern Munich Coach Ancelotti said Bernardeschi is the Italian player he’d most like to have in his team, fuelling already existing reports of a summer bid.

“I am honoured that the likes of Ancelotti, Cesare Prandelli and Marcello Lippi hold me in such high regard. I am not troubled by interest from big clubs, as I am focused only on doing well in Florence.

“Wearing the Number 10 jersey was extra motivation after coming back from a long injury lay-off. That shirt means so much at Fiorentina, it’s a symbol, and I returned with even greater desire.”

The Viola will face Tottenham in the Europa League and are currently only one point off Serie A leaders Inter.

“We are only partially a surprise outfit, because we know our potential and how hard we are working. I don’t see much that we are missing to be considered Scudetto contenders.

“The second half of the season will be tougher, because now everyone knows our style and how dangerous we can be, but we have the right mentality.

“This term it’s very balanced and I don’t see a real Scudetto favourite. Inter and Juventus are more accustomed to success, so they have something more under pressure.

“I hope 2016 will be my year and that of Fiorentina.”
