Fiorentina coach Montella shrugs off Berbatov snub

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella insists he isn't bothered about missing out on Dimitar Berbatov.

The former Manchester United striker eventually signed for Fulham.

"The Bulgarian was one of our objectives, but we all know how that ended up..." shrugged Montella.

"I had asked for a striker and certainly wasn't expecting someone who had won the Golden Boot. Berbatov was an objective, like many others.

"I am happy to have Stevan Savic in my squad, as I already knew of him and he has similar characteristics to Matija Nastasic. Giulio Migliaccio brings characteristics we were lacking and Cristian Llama is versatile, as I know from working with him at Catania."
