Commisso: ‘Fiorentina didn’t kill the game’

Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso was disappointed, but philosophical after a 4-3 defeat to Inter. ‘We were leading twice and didn’t kill off the match.’

The Viola were 3-2 up at the 86th minute, but conceded two goals to lose 4-3 at San Siro.

“This is football. You win, you lose, all in minutes, or seconds,” President Commisso told DAZN.

“I said this morning Inter are probably the best squad in Italy, we are young and I think we’re stronger than last season, but we’re still learning. A draw would’ve been fair, as we were leading twice and didn’t kill off the match.”

Franck Ribery created two goals with magical passes and there would’ve been a third had Dusan Vlahovic not wasted the finish.

“Ribery was phenomenal, Federico Chiesa hurt himself and also had to come off, but these things happen. We lost the first two games of last season, drew at Juventus and I think we didn’t win until Week 5. So it’s already an improvement and we’ll make ourselves heard in Serie A this season.”

Sofyan Amrabat made his Viola debut, as he was suspended for last week’s 1-0 win over Torino.

“The objective is to stay in the top half of the table and we all really want to do better than 10th place. I am confident that we will do that, as the team is much stronger this year.”

Chiesa was working his socks off in the right wing-back role, so will he stay at Fiorentina?

“We’ll see, won’t we? It’s the last week of the transfer market and anything is possible. Fiorentina’s market isn’t closed, so we will see next week.”
