Fiorentina's coach Giuseppe Iachini spoke in his pre-match press conference on the eve of the Coppa Italia match against Atalanta.
“The Coppa Italia is a big challenge for us, it’s very important. We want to do our best. We have to look at the positives. Two weeks ago, we were close to the relegation zone, now we’ve shown we’re solid and secured two important results against Bologna and SPAL. Now we think about being solid, strong, concentrated. One step at a time; we can grow and improve.”
“Atalanta showed against Inter that they are a great team, coached wonderfully. It shows how well they’ve been working. They’ve been working together for four years; we’ve been together for two weeks. Atalanta can be an example to follow – how to close the gap between the top clubs and us.”
