Serie A TIM


Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini speaks ahead of the away game at Sassuolo, on Matchday 31 in Serie A.

ON THE REMAINING MATCHES - "When I returned last month I knew the remaining fixtures would be tough. But we must think one game at a time and face each opponent. Sassuolo at the moment are on the right path to become like Atalanta. They have been working together for three years, with the same coach. De Zerbi is doing extremely well. They can play in various ways, they are great in possession."

ON THE MOMENT - "The players have shown they are willing to work and improve on a few things. We still have to do better, especially at the back. We need to be solid in defence and then capable to create chances up front. It was a pity against Atalanta to concede straight after our equaliser. We weren't lucky. No excuses, but we reacted, equalised and weren't lucky on the penalty. After our second goal we wanted to win the match. We need to be focused for the full game. We need to improve quickly."

ON THE PRESIDENT - "Having President Commisso here gives us extra motivation, but we must focus on the pitch and on working hard. We feel responsible for our fans and we want to show them we want to react."

ON INDIVIDUALS - "We're working on various things to take the players to their best level. This goes for Castrovilli as well - I'm convinced he will help us a lot in the upcoming games. Some of the players have had injuries, Kokorin for example, who is still working individually. Igor is recovering still."
