Montella calls for "confidence, sacrifice and humility" ahead of Juve clash

Vincenzo Montella met with the media this afternoon to preview tomorrow’s crunch Serie A meeting with Juventus.

Is tomorrow your biggest game of the season?

“It’s important for us to do well in it. We want to do something to improve our league position. Juve under Allegri are a formidable side. They have the sort of strong mentality and belief that only the big teams have.” What will Fiorentina need to display after the win over Cagliari?
“Confidence, sacrifice and humility. There’s never any lack of incentive when you play against Juventus.”

Do Fiorentina play better with 3-5-2?

“I’m not sure we do. The formation doesn’t count for much anyway: it’s all relative.”


“He’s keeping his head down and grafting hard, during the week as well.” Gomez?
“He’s got himself off the mark again now. We were all waiting for it to happen. We’re counting on Mario.” Is Tevez the symbol of this Juve side?
“Unfortunately there have lots of key players. They have strength throughout the team.” How’s Pizarro?
“He’s fine. He’s trained normally.” Mati Fernandez?
“He’s playing with more consistency than he did in the past.” Will the fans be enough to make up the difference in quality between the two teams?
“When the fans get behind you it’s like having a 12th man and that’s what we need.” ]]>
