Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano speaks ahead of the home game against AC Milan, at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Matchday 13 in Serie A.

ON THE DEFENCE - "With all the absences in defence we prepared a few situations with some different faces and let's see what we can do."

ON AC MILAN - "We face the team top of the league, they never lost. It will be a tough match and the chance to face players of the highest level. We're working to have a certain type of approach and identity. We will have to limit AC Milan."

ON NICO GONZALEZ - "Nico Gonzalez is unable to play a full match, it takes time. We need to be extra careful, and he is slowly recovering. He will be on the bench."

ON PIOLI - "Stefano Pioli is showing his value. AC Milan in recent years have done well, they're aggressive, defend well, a solid group, dangerous when attacking. It's down to him as well. I admire him."

ON FIORENTINA - "A team becomes a strong team when it reacts positively to difficult moments - it's something we need to improve on. We're improving week after week."
