Serie A TIM

SOUSA: "BASEL A GREAT TEAM. WORKING TO INSTIL A WINNING MENTALITY"

Paulo Sousa and Nenad Tomovic spoke to the media at St. Jakob-Park on the eve of Thursday's Europa League clash with Basel.

SOUSA:

Is Borja Valero available?
“That's something we'll decide on tomorrow.”

Why is Mario Suarez not in the squad?
“It's a question of numbers. You have smaller squads in the Europa League than in Serie A TIM. I always make my decisions based on the type of game we have to play. It has nothing to do with his performance against Empoli.”

What sort of game will it be tomorrow?
“A difficult one because Basel are used to aiming high.”

Will Fiorentina focus on Europe or Serie A TIM in the end?
“We can't favour one over the other. We work hard every day to try and instil a winning mentality and if you have that you try to win every single game; you don't decide to give up on one of your targets.”

How important is Bernardeschi?
“He started out as a support striker but he's very willing to adapt and put in a shift for the team. He's exemplary.”

TOMOVIC:

Will nothing but a win do for Fiorentina against Basel?
“We'll give everything we've got against Basel as we always do. We want to go through and achieve our targets.”

What's the mood in the camp like after Sunday's draw?
“We showed what a good team we are in the second half. A draw was the right result in the end.”

Have you watched your first game against Basel again?
“We're ready for them and well aware of what we need to do.”
