Fiorentina is not in hurry to fire Montella

Florentine Fiorentina are not going to dismiss the head coach of the team Vincenzo Montella.

Vincenzo Montella was a good striker in the past, who spent the lion's share of his football career in Roma, where he played for ten years and scored nearly a hundred goals. Subsequently, here he began his career as a coach, but then went to Catania and a year later he headed Fiorentina.

In the first season in Florence, Montella lifted the team from 14th place to 4th and ended up in the Europa League. The following season, he took the same place in Serie A and brought the team to the semi-finals of the Europa League, where he lost to the champions, Sevilla. After that there were unsuccessful voyages to Sampdoria, Milan and Sevilla, as a result of which he returned to Fiorentina despite a bad relationship with the management since 2015.

Last season, the Violets barely stayed in the elite of the Italian football, showing themselves terribly in the second half of the season. The team did not win a single match in the spring in Serie A. Therefore, the management brought back Montella and strengthened the squad. True, such changes were not enough for a stable game in the championship. Over 14 matches, the team won only four victories and is occupying 11th place in the league.

After losing to Lecce in the final round, Vincenzo had a conversation with the players and asked them not to give up and to productively hold the next matches against Citadella, Torino, Inter and Roma. According to the Italian media, after the game with Lecce, the Violets management was ready to sack Montella and even found a replacement for him. If the Airplane leaves, he will be replaced by former Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso.

Therefore, Montella has one last chance. Judging by the ultimatum that the bosses of Fiorentina put forward, Vincenzo needs to win all the matches of December and only then he will remain at Artemio Franchi.
