Fiorentina Midfielder Riccardo Montolivo Disappointed After Loss To Inter

Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo admits he had high hopes going into the second leg of Coppa Italia semi-final against Inter considering his side's performance against the Nerazzurri in the league.

But the Italy international is disappointed with the final outcome, suffering a 1-0 defeat and 2-0 loss on aggregate.

"In the dressing room, we were all down because in the first half, we could have scored, but were unable to finish off our chances," the 25-year-old to TMW after the match. "Then, the goal we conceded took away any hope we had.

"It is a shame because when we played them on Saturday, we were able to score two goals.

"We played better than them this evening until they scored.

Montolivo was also asked whether he thought the season had been a failure compared to the high standard the Viola set themselves.

"We have been unlucky in both Serie A and Champions League, and surely deserved more. But we still have a chance to qualify for the Europa League, and will assess the outcome of the season when it has finished.

"At the moment, we are only thinking about how we are going to win in Bergamo [against Atalanta], he added.
