Fiorentina coach Rossi explains dropping Gilardino for Siena stalemate
He surprised many this afternoon by dropping Gilardino and Manuel Pasqual for the Tuscan derby.
"A Coach is paid to make choices and I never look at names when I pick my players. In other occasions I substituted Gilardino, while this time I introduced him after the break. Pasqual got a knock to the head two days ago and I didn't want to risk him.
"There will be one or two changes in January, but no transformation or signing a saviour. We've got to work and that is all."
