The Viola lost 3-0 in their International Champions Cup opener.

I'm happy with how we held our own for the first 60 minutes," Montella told Sky Sport Italia.

We did especially well in the first half. We were very imposing at the back and we played with the principles we'd been working on in training, or at least tried to.

3-0 was too harsh on us."

<![CDATA[Arsenal boss Emery pleased with victory over Fiorentina]]> <p>Arsenal boss Unai Emery was pleased with victory over Fiorentina.</p><p>The Gunners won 3-0 in Charlotte.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/arsenal-boss-emery-pleased-with-victory-over-fiorentina-4289708?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BFiorentina'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Arsenal boss Unai Emery was pleased with victory over Fiorentina.

The Gunners won 3-0 in Charlotte.

Emery said afterwards, "The result is not important and today we won 3-0 but Fiorentina created chances. I am happy with the match. In the first half we didn't control the game like we wanted, with possession and build-up. We created chances but we also conceded a lot. In the second half maybe we found better with 4-3-3 the structure to control the match. This is the way to convince everyone we need to work harder than last year to achieve our targets."

Asked about playing with a back three or back four, Emery is eager for his players to be flexible.

He also stated, "Last year we worked with both systems and changed it a lot because the quality of players is better with one system or the other. We have very offensive full-backs and sometimes we need to protect them. We tried to play with four and three. Now I want to be working with both systems because sometimes we can achieve a very big performance with Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac both playing.

"Three centre backs is the best for that. Playing Nacho in the centre of a back four is not the best position for him, and Sead Kolasinac I want to improve his performance to be strong defensively in a back four because we are going to use this system."

"Some players are very expensive and we are waiting for this possibility because we don't want now to go to the second line of players. We are waiting and really we have very good young players.

"We are aware we also need to improve some areas in this squad. But I only want to sign three or four players only if we can be sure they are coming to improve our squad.

"There are a lot of names and the club is working. Edu is very close to me every day and also with the Kroenke family.

"I want to send a message to all our supporters that we want to [build] the best squad possible."
