Fiorentina coach Montella admits title push could be on

Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella admits victory over Chievo Verona could open up a title challenge today.

The Tuscans are flying high in joint fifth place and many believe they play the best football in Serie A.

"Winning tomorrow would mean a lot and obviously we'll try out best. I hope the approach and interpretation of the match are correct," said the Coach.

"President Andrea Della Valle has given us enthusiasm. Beating Chievo, who are a tough, experienced and quality opponent, can open up interesting scenarios.

"I have an excellent rapport with Eugenio Corini, as we were even classmates in the coaching certificate course. He was already a Coach even when he was playing.

"It's true that we haven't won on our travels yet, but I don't think there is an 'away problem' at Fiorentina. We've played more or less the same way apart from the opening 30 minutes against Inter.

"Perhaps we lack cynicism and do not know how to 'win ugly,' but one cannot go into a game thinking like that."
