The coach spoke on the eve of the challenge against Basaksehir

Without victories for almost two months (the last success came in the first leg of the Conference League preliminaries, against Twente), and just back in the European arena from the disappointing home draw against RFS, Fiorentina faces the difficult challenge against the Turks of Basaksehir with many fewer certainties than the expectations of the beginning of the season.

The coach of the violets, Vincenzo Italiano, also knows this well, and in the press conference for the presentation of the match he did not hide and was self-critical, identifying the team’s main problem: “I am the one who has to find solutions to make the team score goals- he said. The only problem is that.”

“If we analyze the results compared to last year, we have six fewer points and we were also scoring a few more goals,” he went on to explain. “However, it took little to turn the draws with Juventus and Empoli into victories. Every championship is never the same as the previous one, we were capable of great performances but we collected little.”

“The injuries? I don’t want any alibis, they are part of the game,” Italiano added. “We have tried in every way to avoid them, but look at the case of Dodò: we had given him two days of rest and then, out of nowhere, he hurt his calf. Beyond that, we all have to give more: we all have to get a move on.”
