Stramaccioni has not been able to call upon Sneijder since taking over, but the Dutchman‚Äôs position had troubled both Gian Piero Gasperini and Claudio Ranieri.
‚ÄúI think Fiorentina are going through a good period of form despite their position in the table, as they did well against Milan and Palermo,‚ÄĚ said ‚Äėthe Italian Andre Villas-Boas.‚Äô
‚ÄúCertainly Delio Rossi‚Äôs talents and their desire to get out of an ugly situation will be strong motivating forces for them tomorrow. It‚Äôs difficult for anyone at the Stadio Franchi.
‚ÄúAs for Sneijder, I don‚Äôt want to make comparisons with those who preceded me, but a player like Sneijder can never be a problem. He has unique characteristics in our squad and is a very important figure in tactical terms. The only issue might be with his fitness."
