Pioli hails "important result"

Stefano Pioli was full of praise for his Fiorentina side after they beat Sassuolo 3-0 on Sunday to secure their first win in Serie A since late October.

"This is a really important result because it backs up the draw we got against Lazio last Sunday," said Pioli, speaking in his post-match press conference. "I think we fully deserved the win on the basis of our performance, the way we approached the game and the desire we showed.

"I thought we took our foot off the gas a bit at the start of the second half, however, and we made some mistakes that on other days we might have been punished for. We’ll look at that."

The coach insisted that the Viola are on an upwards curve, having strung together three league games without defeat now.

"Winning makes everything seem more positive, but this team is improving," he said. "We’re competing well, apart from in a couple of matches when we’ve had bad days – take Crotone and the second half against Chievo, for example. We know the way we want to play football, approach games and take it to other teams.

"There’s definitely a lot of room for improvement still and the league is very tough this year. Taking the top five out of it, it’s really tricky because you can win, lose or draw against any team. There’s not much between any of us."
