Fiorentina Manager Stefano Pioli made it clear that today’s victory was important and that the Viola could push for Europa League qualification.

The Gigliati managed to defeat Torino 2-1 at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino this afternoon thanks to a stoppage-time penalty from Cyril Thereau.

Pilot spoke to Mediaset Premium after the game and complimented his side for their performance.

“It would’ve been a pity not to win this game considering all we put into it, we are going through a difficult time, but it is best for us to celebrate like this and let it out. The victory was important and my lads are working with great commitment.

“Davide was the first to believe in our work. It’s only natural that we miss him in training and the locker room, but we feel he is within us”.

Pioli was asked whether his Fiorentina side could challenge for Europa League qualification.

“When in the past we considered aiming higher, we tended to lose our way, so we just promised ourselves we’d continue giving our all until the end of the season. It’s a complicated fixture list, as we have to face many teams desperate for points to avoid relegation”.
