Prandelli : In Mutu We Thrust !

Spreaking at a press conference ahead of tomorrow's encounter with the Giallorossi in Roma, Prandelli was confident that his side had the advantage because of they have star striker Adrian Mutu in their ranks.

Fiorentina's Prandelli Believes In Mutu
Roma go into their Serie A clash with Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico tomorrow confident that the worst is behind them. The Giallorossi had a torrid start to the season, picking up all three points in just two of their first 10 games in the league.

Things have recently turned around however, as a 1-0 win over Lazio in the Rome derby two weeks ago followed by a convincing 3-0 victory away to Lecce in the last game have dragged the capital club up to 14th place, three points clear of the relegation zone.

The Viola started the season well but have been shaky away from Florence. An impressive 4-2 win over Udinese last weekend has boosted their confidence and they will be looking to bounce back immediately and avoid a fifth away defeat of the season.

Prandelli commented on the mega match against the capital club, “It will be very difficult, they have found their style of play, results and enthusiasm. They are a great squad again. We have to put them in difficulty, we know that we can do it.”

Moving on to the question of whether this match is seen as a fight for fourth place, Prandelli responded, “We don't think about it as a challenge for the fourth spot. We need to play a good game because Roma concedes few goals, and we need to overcome our limits and approach the game in a positive manner.”

Finally the Viola tactician had a few words for Mutu and Francesco Totti, seen as the two main protagonists in the match. “They are the players with the most class in terms of deciding the match, and Mutu can make the difference.”
