Fiorentina coach Italiano: I fear everything about AC Milan

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano admits he “fears” facing AC Milan today.

The Viola meet Milan needing a result after defeat to Inter Milan last week.

“I fear everything about the Rossoneri. This is a squad that has achieved great things and plays spectacular football,” said Italiano.

“We prepared for this match with the right focus, it is a good test for us. We must try to finish our chances and have a clear conscience at the end of the match, hopefully with points.

“In both meetings last season with Milan, we played with courage and character, especially the second leg, so I want to see that kind of attitude again.

“It has been a difficult campaign for us, but the lads reacted to turn things around, first in the Conference League and then Serie A. I saw the right spirit and we need that against Milan too.”
