Fiorentina coach Prandelli: We can survive without Mutu

Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli insists they can survive without injured Adrian Mutu.

"Let's remember that we've also done well without him," said the tactician. "I read that Fiorentina play with one striker, but that's not true. We play with a second striker like Mutu who has also scored many goals."

Prandelli is looking to Argie Pablo Osvaldo to pick up the slack left by Mutu and added: "At the moment putting in Osvaldo is the right thing, because he's working hard to cover that role.

"Perhaps he received too many compliments when he came in against Livorno, but then he also had some injury problems.

"However, in the last few weeks he's worked hard and tomorrow night he will be ready for action."
