Montella: Giuseppe Rossi is a genius

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has described striker Giuseppe Rossi as "a genius footballer."

Giuseppe Rossi has been in excellent form this season.

Horncastle: Rossi ready for World Cup

Rossi is currently Serie A's top goalscorer, having put years of injury agony behind him to spearhead the Viola's push for a place in Europe next season. His 14 goals in 17 games have positioned Fiorentina in fourth place approaching the midway stage of the season, just three points adrift of third-placed Napoli.

"You can see that Rossi is a genius footballer," Montella told Italy's Mediaset television of the Italy international. "He's also a really nice lad, open to everybody. He may arrive for training a bit late sometimes, and it's not like I'm delighted about that, but I do turn a blind eye now and again."

The 26-year-old’s performances have left Fiorentina fans dreaming of Champions League football again next season, and Montella believes his side can get even better.

"My Fiorentina is not complete yet, and this means there is room for improvement, even though we have already reached a great level," Montella said. "It's all about finding the right balance. I would like to concede fewer and win games more easily, but that at least gives us something to work on."

Fiorentina host Livorno on Sunday and a win in that Tuscan derby would take them level on points with Napoli, who host Sampdoria on Monday.
