The midfielder left Roma for Cagliari - but not before speaking with the Viola.

Montella said, "I've been following him for some time. There was the possibility [of a move] and he was tempted, but he decided to go with his heart and went back to Cagliarl."

He also stated, "They've been a bit of a revelation in the league. Their midfield is their strongest point and they don't have to be envious of the other sides in Serie A. It will be a good game because they're in a healthy state and their pitch is a little smaller than others, and this will help them. It will be a huge test for us."

Gaetano Castrovilli's diving header cancelled out the Gervinho counter-attack at the Stadio Franchi.

We struggled and I didn't like the attitude in the first half, as we lacked determination both on the ball and off it. We conceded when losing possession in midfield," Montella told Sky Sport Italia.

I don't know if we felt the pressure with so many young players on the field, or the change of system affected them or what caused it, but we saw a different team after the break.

The team reacted very well and showed maturity. That means we are on our way to achieving that mentality. Perhaps the goal was the wake-up call we needed to get more players into the opposition box.

We knew Parma would defend and counter, so we kept a lot of possession, but if we'd been more precise, we could've taken home all three points."

Ribery has high praise for Viola boss Vincenzo Montella.

He said: He is young but always close to the players. I like him very much.

"I love the culture here, the way you think. It is full of restaurants and bridges, and when the sun is shining it is beautiful. For me, it is difficult to get around.

I am at the training ground a lot, and when I finish training I go home to rest and spend time with my family.

"This club has a great history, there are many great players and men: [Gabriel] Batistuta, [Roberto] Baggio and [Luca] Toni.

The club has always believed in me, right from the start."

Former Milan chief Adriano Galliani, now running Monza, says he wanted the Rossonero before Yonghong Li's takeover.

Fiorentina are doing very well now," Galliani told Calciomercato.com.

Commisso was on the verge of buying Milan. I don't understand why Yonghong Li didn't sell Milan to him.

He lost everything in a few days and Elliott took over. I never understood it.

I met him in Milan, he made a great impression on me and what Li did remains a great mystery.

Fiorentina got a great deal with Commisso. I also want to point out the Della Valles. I'd like to know what would've happened to Fiorentina without them."

The midfielder has been suspended for three games after shoving a match official following defeat to Lazio.

"We accept Ribery's ban, so let's move on," Commisso told Radio Toscana.

I'm sorry for him because he'd been the best in Serie A, then this happened to the poor lad.

When I played, I never agreed with the referees. People love me even when we don't win, but we hope to win again soon.

I saw the lads demoralised, especially Ribery. It was a bad day for the red cards and also for the injuries to Lirola and Caceres."

Corriere dello Sport says Ausilio took in the 0-0 draw to check on Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali.

Tonali has long been on the radar of Europe's biggest clubs and the Nerazzurri manager wanted to make a first personal check on the youngster.

Brescia president Massimo Cellino slapped a 30m price-tag on the teen over the summer.

However, after a full season in Serie A, Cellino is expected to seek double that valuation next summer.

Prad was asked if they would revive their approach for the 19-year-old in January.

No, we won't try again in January," he said.

"We'll be concentrating on sales rather than purchases. Besides that, why would Brescia want to sell Tonali mid-season?"

They meet on Monday and Prade added: Brescia are a very tough opponent, because they have an excellent Coach like Eugenio Corini, a star striker like Mario Balotelli and strong midfielder in Tonali.

It will be really difficult for us to win at the Stadio Rigamonti."
