Delio Rossi insists he doesn't regret taking the Fiorentina job.

Rossi replaced Sinisa Mihajlovic mid-season and enthusiasm quickly gave way to vicious protests from disgruntled fans following last week's home defeat to Lecce.

"Do I regret coming here? I chose Fiorentina, they didn't choose me. I like challenges and am convinced of my decisions. Of course it was horrible against Lecce, but I carry on determined to do well," said Rossi.

"I ask the fans for a show of faith. Even jeers and insults are part of their love for the Viola. At the moment we are in the phase of a love that feels betrayed, but in this case Fiorentina are the most important thing and we must all focus only on that."
