Serie A TIM


Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini speaks ahead of the clash with Lazio at the Stadio Franchi on Matchday 35 in Serie A.

ON THE UPCOMING MONTH - "We cannot look at others, we must look at ourselves and have great performances. We must stay focused and keep our level high. Football has different moments - it happens to concede at the back, whilst improving up front. Recently we create more in attack."

ON THE SPIRIT - "Against Bologna we made some mistakes at the back, but the mentality and spirit was the right one, we attacked until the very end. We crumbled just in the final 20 minutes at Sassuolo. "The mentality has been the right one so far. We must keep working hard, and be as good as possible as quickly as possible in the final month of the season. The same backline we saw against Bologna is the one that did very well against Juventus. We need to be solid and compact at the back, as a group. The only path is working hard, day after day, week after week."

ON LAZIO - "Lazio have quality and have worked together for many years. Lazio are fighting for Europe, but we will have to be ready as we're fighting as well. They have quality and can always create trouble, we'll need a great performance up front and at the back."
