The 46-year-old was replaced by Giuseppe Iachini in December 2019 after struggling to produce the results and replicate the type of football played during his first spell with I Gigliati from 2012 until 2015.
However, the former Viola and AC Milan tactician wants to find another club that would embrace his possession-based attacking philosophy.
“Certainly mistakes have been made due to inexperience,” Montella told Il Corriere dello Sport. “I would like to work with a club that has a vision of football similar to mine. I want to coach, I hope that a great opportunity will come.”
Despite being sacked by Rocco Commisso, the former Gigliati coach still holds the Fiorentina president in high regard.
“Commisso is a person with a lot of enthusiasm, he has put a lot of money in Fiorentina,” Montella said.
