Fiorentina coach Rossi defends axing Cerci

Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi stood by his decision to axe Alessio Cerci for their draw at Cagliari.

Cerci has been dropped after a row with fans.

“Cerci is a wide attacker with certain characteristics, so he has been penalised by our change to a 3-5-2 system. If he gets the chance, it’s best he go express himself elsewhere, otherwise he’ll have to stay in Florence and try to adapt.”
