Italiano on Jovic: He is a Striker of a Certain Breed

Vicenzo Italiano will see his Fiorentina side face Atalanta in the Serie A on Sunday. That will be a crucial match for both sides. La Viola‘s coach had his pre-game press conference on Friday ahead of the big match.

He highlighted the Bergamaschi’s fantastic start to the season, in part as a result of having no European football to play this campaign. In speaking of his opposite number Gian Piero Gasperini, Italiano described the Atalanta gaffer as “a great coach.”

As to whether Fiorentina is back on the up, Italiano referenced his side’s strong showings against Napoli and Juventus. Earning draws in each match against “two of the strongest squads in the championship” showed the Tuscans’ quality.

On summer signing Luka Jovic, the former Spezia boss described him as “a striker from a certain breed.” The 24-year-old former Eintracht Frankfurt man still “has plenty of time to grow.” The Serbian striker has netted once so far this season for his new side.
