Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella froze out Adem Ljajic for their friendly win over Apollon Limassol.

The midfielder is yet to discuss new terms with the Viola.

“We all know Ljajic’s quality and he still needs to grow. There are some market situations in play and over the last few days I saw some conflict within him," said Montella.

“He’ll play as long as I can see that he is relaxed and gives me guarantees on his concentration, especially considering his age.”
