Vincenzo Montella - Fiorentina coach believes his side were too naive in thinking they had already won the match after Giuseppe Rossi’s penalty, before eventually falling 2-1 to on Thursday night.

Goals from Esteban Cambiasso and Jonathan were enough to give the Nerazzurri the three points but Montella believes his side put on a performance worthy of a result.

“The only thing I didn’t like was the result,” he told Sky Sport.

“My players played a great match. We were overtaken in the second half, but the match was played well by my squad.

“I must compliment my players, they played a great match against a top squad. We showed that we are a great group.

“The defence when [Esteban] Cambiasso scored? Borja Valero was close to Neto, [Nenad] Tomovic would have kept the Argentina in play regardless. We shouldn’t get upset with Neto, I have seen worse mistakes from other goalkeepers.

“The first half? We did well. Half way through the second half Inter had the same physical problems as us. We made the mistake of thinking we had already won, but these types of matches never end.

“Giuseppe Rossi? He has the dream of returning to the national team, [Cesare] Prandelli will decide. Selfishly I hope he stays here so he can recover, but he has a lot of desire to return to wearing the Azzurri shirt.

“Inter? They have a great squad and a great coach, they will do well the rest of the season.”

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed.
