Beppe Iachini was full of praise for his Fiorentina team after they swept Bologna aside with a 4-0 win at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Wednesday evening.

“I’m pleased with the way the team went about the game – we showed the right attitude,” said Iachini, speaking in his post-match press conference. “This is the Apennines Derby so I’d asked the lads for a big performance. I wanted organisation and focus and the lads did very well – their response was good. It was an excellent performance. We need to keep doing our best until the end of the season.”

Federico Chiesa took most of the plaudits following a stunning hat-trick, with Iachini sharing his satisfaction with the forward’s performance since he took over.

“I’m particularly happy for Federico because when I joined I told him he should be getting to double figures this season – and really he should have got there a few weeks ago!” he said. “He’s had some chances that he’s not been able to take. He’s done that tonight and it’s a record goal haul for him, so I’m pleased for him. He needs to keep it up. He’s a great lad, a great professional and a great player.”

Iachini was keen to talk up the contribution of the squad as a whole, however, as a unique season draws to a close.

“The whole team deserves praise for what we’ve achieved together,” he said. “There’s been plenty to deal with this season and we have the youngest team in the league – let’s not forget that. It’s certainly not been easy but we’ve done well. We have the best defensive record since the restart and we’ve continually improved on our stats. We need to keep progressing until the final game of the season.”
