Highlights and reaction: Fiorentina 5-1 Reggiana



Beppe Iachini’s Fiorentina side continued their pre-season preparations with a 5-1 win over Reggiana at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Saturday.

Franck Ribery (2), Federico Chiesa and Christian Kouame fired Fiorentina into a 4-0 lead before half time, while Kouame netted again in the second half to complete the scoring for the home side.

“We’re working well and showing the right mentality and organisation out there,” said Iachini after the game. “We know each other better than we did in the past so we need to approach the situation correctly and help some of the lads that aren’t so familiar with what we’re trying to do to settle in. We’re on the right track. We’ll try to be ready for the start of the season.”

Iachini went on to look ahead to the season opener against Torino next week.

“Torino are a tough, well-organised side with plenty of quality so we need to be ready for it – we have a lot of respect for them,” he said. “We’ll be the home side so we want to get off to a good start, but the lads know that and that’s what we’re working towards. We need to keep improving so we can have a good season – that’s what we want and that’s what we’re preparing for.”
