Fiorentina coach Pioli pleased to see off Empoli

Fiorentina coach Stefano Pioli was pleased with their 3-1 win over Empoli.

Both Kevin Mirallas and Giovanni Simeone were on the scoresheet for the Viola.

"This was a very challenging game, but we were driven and we gave it everything we had," said Pioli after the match.

"After Juventus, Empoli are the team that picked up the most points over the last four games. Considering the context, we did really well.

"What I liked the most was our never-say-die spirit. We did not give in after the opponents took advantage of our mistake and scored a goal. We wanted a victory, and we earned it."
