Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi accepts he's under pressure.

Rossi was drafted in to replace Sinisa Mihajlovic, but has so far failed to revive the Fiorentina fortunes.

“I am not a caretaker. I have a contract for next season too and therefore I am focused only on the present, for which tomorrow’s game will be crucial.”

The tactician also had a special message for Franco Mancini, the former goalkeeper who died of a heart attack on Friday, aged 43.

“I knew him very well, as he was a goalkeeper in my team. It’s a shocking tragedy and we are all close to his family. When faced with some situations, every word is superfluous.”
