Fiorentina supremo Andrea Dalla Valle says he has sympathy for sacked coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Viola supporters have given their verdict already, as 5,000 came out to see Delio Rossiâ€™s first training ground test match against local side Rondinella, which ended 10-0 thanks to five goals from Alberto Gilardino.
â€śI really wanted to be here for our new tacticianâ€™s first game,â€ť said Dell Valle.
â€śIt has been an intense week with many sad moments. This is football, so we honour Mihajlovic, who behaved like a great man.
â€śHe paid the price for some things that werenâ€™t his fault, but the situation had become unsustainable.
â€śFiorentina are turning over a new leaf with Rossi, a Coach with experience and quality who we respect. I think he is the right man.
â€śItâ€™s still November, so there is time, but I believe we can qualify for Europe. The team is working hard and there are tough tests ahead, but I am convinced we can do it.â€ť
