Fiorentina coach Montella: We can't be happy just avoiding relegation

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella says they can't be happy despite avoiding relegation on the last day of the season.

The Viola played out a 0-0 draw with Genoa to ensure both teams stayed in Serie A as Empoli's 2-1 defeat to Inter sent down the Tuscans.

“We're not happy, even though we avoided relegation," Montella told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a tense game. We've had a very strange season, thankfully it's over now. We risked everything and it could've gone a lot worse.

“We created the best chances. I asked the team to not leave themselves open to the counterattack as that could've been dangerous for us, given we're finding it hard to score."
