Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi has urged fans to get behind their players.
Some have said the players are ‘frightened’ of their own fans, so are currently playing better on their travels than at the Stadio Franchi.
“Our performance in Milan has to make people reflect on the true capabilities of Fiorentina. We need consistency and to confirm those performances, though, so it is better not to think we’ve resolved all our problems,” said Rossi.
“I expect the fans to support Fiorentina, as they must help us. One thing is for certain, we are not afraid of our fans. We’ve got to take the initiative against Palermo, as going on the counter the way we did at San Siro is a limited approach. We can do it when needed, but not all the time.
“We hope Amauri’s goal against Milan is the breakthrough he was looking for, as for a striker the first goal is crucial.”
