New Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella is confident of turning their fortunes around.

Montella was confirmed as new coach yesterday.

"I'm here with great enthusiasm. I want to start a new era in a club who have great faith in me and who did a lot to get me here. I thank everyone.

"I grew up near here, in Empoli, so I think that I already know what to expect from this environment.

"Fiorentina have confidence in me and they have shown a desire to get back their status and proper League position. There is a real desire to do well. There are pros and cons, but I'm ready."
