Vincenzo Montella wary of Udinese threat

Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella says that Udinese will be a "dangerous opponent" for his side in their Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg clash this evening.

Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella has said that he is aware of the danger Udinese possess, ahead of their Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg match this evening.

The Viola lost for the first time in nine games at the weekend when they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Cagliari, and Montella is keen for his players to bounce back with a victory in their cup clash.

"Udinese are a good, strong, young team," he told reporters. "They adapt well to their opponents, they are not defensive and they will be a dangerous opponent for us.

"We accept the criticism for the Cagliari match, even though it is exaggerated. I alone take the blame and responsibility.

"The team tried their best, the only things missing were tactical elements and it's my fault."

Fiorentina are currently fourth in the Serie A table.
