Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has told his players not to live off their impressive first-half of the season.

The Viola currently sit in third place.

"Did I expect such a strong start? To be honest, I still feel that I am 'unripe' as a Coach. In fact, I hope to remain like this, as it can be an important key to success, knowing that you are always developing and maturing.

"With Fiorentina we started from nothing with club owners who wanted to reboot the project. Our objectives for 2013 are to continue giving our all and remain on this level."
