Montella says fatigue to blame for Fiorentina defeat

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella blamed fatigue on defeat to Inter Milan.

Montella feels a fatigued Fiorentina "did not deserve to lose" 2-1 against Inter.

"I think Inter deserved to be in front in the first half, as they were quicker, more reactive and had the initiative," the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"However, in the second half we played the better football and had been able to equalise, but unfortunately Inter got that goal.

"You can also add in the bad luck we had, as Mauro Icardi's goal was offside. We were lacking in energy after the Coppa Italia game and ahead of the Europa League fixture. As Inter will acknowledge, playing in these tournaments takes something away from you in Serie A."
