Montella in dig at Cuadrado & Chelsea: We got the better deal with Salah!

News Oga| Gossip Blog

The Fiorentina coach expressed delighted his delight with the on-loan Egypt internatonal, claiming the Italian outfit got the better deal in the transfer of the Colombian
Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella insists the club are delighted with the part-exchange deal that saw Juan Cuadrado join Chelsea, due to the early form of new signing Mohamed Salah.

The Egypt international arrived in Florence on loan as part of the £24 million deal that took Cuadrado to London in the winter transfer window.

And, having seen Salah score his side’s second goal in their 2-0 Europa League victory over Tottenham on Thursday, Montella claims Fiorentina outmaneuvered the Blues by acquiring the 22-year-old's signature.

"Salah is a player that, even if he takes some breaks, is devastating over 40 or 50 yards,” Montella said.

“Who did better out of the Cuadrado exchange? Fiorentina earned a lot of money and, on the pitch, they are similar players.”

Having disposed of Spurs over two legs - 3-1 on aggregate - Fiorentina will now turn their attention to closing the six-point gap on Napoli and Champions League qualification in Serie A, starting with a trip to Inter this weekend.

Montella added: “We are satisfied, great credit is due to the players and to all the fans. There's little time to enjoy it, though, as on Sunday we have a very important match.

“Inter are certainly going through a really good spell in which they have rediscovered their confidence and self-esteem.”
