Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has joked about the arrival of Marko Marin.

Marin has joined on-loan from Chelsea.

Montella said: "We signed Marin because he's short and that way I can feel taller! In the last two years he hasn't expressed his quality to the full, so we want to get him back to the player he was before."

Cristiano Piccini has been loaned out to Real Betis. "In Spain he can improve technically and it was only right he go out to play more regularly."
