Zdravko Kuzmanovic is convinced Fiorentina can win the UEFA Cup this season after last week's 2-0 first-leg victory over Everton.

The midfielder said: "Would I prefer to focus on Serie A or the UEFA Cup? Both! We can do it. Inter are the strongest in Serie A, but we still have to face them again and want to see how we'll do this time. Perhaps we'll be the winners.

"I just love football and want to learn everything I can so I can give my all for the team and my Fiorentina companions. If I can keep hold of my fitness, then hopefully I can improve even more."

He has been linked with some of Europe's top sides, including Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"I only know I have a contract until 2011 and want to remain with the Viola jersey on my back. As long as Fiorentina want me, I'll be here.

"My idol is Andrea Pirlo, as he is absolutely the best midfielder out there. Then I also like Michael Essien and share some of his characteristics."
