Vincenzo Italiano happy with first weeks at Fiorentina

Vincenzo Italiano is happy with his first weeks at Fiorentina.

The new Viola coach spoke with local media on Sunday.

“I'm grateful to the club, to Rocco Commisso, Joe Barone and Daniele Prade. They really wanted me. That means everything to me. It means people value you, believe in you, have confidence in you. When that's the case, you're happy to take on the responsibility – to try to repay all of that," Italiano told Fiorentina's official website.

“Slowly but surely, I'm getting to know everyone. This is a fantastic club, a top-level club. I took on this challenge because I believe this is a quality team, with lots of great players who perhaps haven't yet reached their full potential. That's the challenge for me. It's also a challenge with myself to try to achieve something important.

“I hope it proves to be a big success all round: in improving the players, improving on last season, on a personal level and for Fiorentina. I'll certainly put everything I have into it – heart and soul – as I have at all the clubs I've worked for.

“I'm here to get results."
