Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle insists coach Vincenzo Montella is staying.

Montella has been linked with bigger clubs after guiding the Viola within touching distance of Champions League qualification.

Della Valle said: "Vincenzo Montella is the centre of our project. The lads have to win the remaining three games for him and for the fans. Now we've got to end on a high. After so many sacrifices, we are challenging for something important.

"At the end of the season we will sit down around a table and evaluate how to improve the squad so we can confirm ourselves at this level."
