Fourth consecutive defeat in the league and the relegation zone only five points away. Fiorentina seems to have resumed the inevitable slope of last season's final when even a draw was a mirage. The helmsman of this drifting boat, today as then, is Vincenzo Montella and, although it is ungenerous to attribute to it all the responsibilities of the situation created, it is equally true that the unwritten laws of football are inexorable. Not being able to instantly change all the men on the pitch, you change who is on the bench. Once again, however, the president Rocco Commisso he remains anchored to his idea of coming to terms only at the end, thus postponing the decision by the great majority of the supporters at the hands of a few games.
"I have the strength to go on" - he assures Montella.
"Montella will be with Inter and Roma" - he says Pradè.
"Let's see what happens with Inter" - he comments the president Commisso.
Meanwhile, however, there are rumors of Rino Gattuso, Calabrese as the patron, but about to move to Naples in the event of an exemption from Ancelotti.
The report cards
DRAGOWSKI 5,5 - On the first goal he has no faults, on the second he could have done more. Some parades, one of foot
CACERES 6,5 - The game often passes by him. In addition to the usual coverage tasks, he also found the first goal in a purple shirt
CECCHERINI 5,5 - Some decisive interventions but also lightness, even on the Zaza network
MILENKOVIC 5,5 - He was also an accomplice in the first goal conceded
DALBERT 5 - In the four-man defense, he is less comfortable
GHEZZAL 4 - Insufficient contribution both in the offensive and in the defensive phase given that on its Ansaldi band it goes away easily
FROM THE 51 ' THIN 5 - He has the great opportunity to save the coach's bench that he sent to that country only a few days before but wastes his goal on the ball to kick into the net. A few minutes earlier he had engaged Sirigu
PULGAR 4,5 - Some meager chase towards the opponent but little more. It neither builds nor fights. Apathetic
BENASSI 5 - Against his former team, he does not repeat the one-two against the Citadel. Discontinuous, as often happens
CASTROVILLI 6,5 - The most dynamic, eager, one of the few to believe it
VLAHOVIC 4,5 - He plays little for the team and also for himself as he does not finalize
FROM THE 78 ' PEDRO 5 - A few minutes at his disposal but when he gets the ball right he takes it over
4,5 CHURCH - Apart from a shot on the goalkeeper in the first half, the assist for Caceres is the only good thing of a totally inadequate game with so many turnovers and questionable attitudes towards his teammates
ALL. MONTELLA 4 - Like the four consecutive defeats in the league. the team still follows him?
