Sitting at 16th in Serie A simply showed that Fiorentina are having a difficult season and one of the things that made their ride hasn’t been enjoyable is simply their inconsistency in picking up results, even after the arrival of new coach, Delio Rossi.
Successfully taking points from Ac Milan, Inter along with Roma, Fiorentina are usually having tough times facing mid-bottom tables team, something that their tactician want to eliminate.
We must not think about these things. We must learn how to get points against anyone, as we need them to secure safety and it doesn’t matter whether we pick them up against small or big sides,” Rossi said.
This weekend, another test awaits La Viola, after their recent positive results against so called big boys, it’s time that Rossi’s boys improve their consistency and pick up another important points which will be valuable for their mission in climbing out of the relegation zone. The tactician reminds his players that facing Atalanta won’t be an easy task since they’ve been one of the surprise force this season, picking up lots of points that helped them sit in mid-table despite having six points deducted from the start of season.
Morever, with the injury problems and also absentees that Fiorentina are having, things obviously will get really hard considering the Florence based outfit are set to play at Bergamo. However, Rossi once again hope that his team can emulate the same spirit they showed when playing against big teams as that’s the only way to make Fiorentina secure from relegation danger by the end of season.
“Atalanta are the real revelations of the tournament and it will be one of our toughest away games. I spent perhaps the best six months of my career in Bergamo,” Rossi added. “We have to reshuffle due to injuries and bans, but as always make do with what we have.”
