Fiorentina coach Stefano Pioli happy with Udinese win

Fiorentina coach Stefano Pioli was delighted with their 2-1 win against Udinese.

Fiorentina led 2-0 through a Cyril Thereau brace, but Samir's goal kept the result in doubt to the final whistle.

“We had a complete lack of intensity in the defeat to Chievo, so it was important to have this reaction," Pioli told Mediaset Premium.

“We can do a lot better in our control of the game when we're in front, though. It's going to be a season with difficult moments, but we can build something important here.

“Our plan is to play every game in order to win, as that's football and it's what we did today. We do need to improve our consistency throughout the match, as we are not always sharp towards the end.

“We were made to suffer for this result and that makes it feel sweeter."
