The Spanish star named in his team line-up after a long time and had a good performance

Fiorentina star Jose Callejon believes that the victory against Cagliari gave his team strength and that the confrontation with his former team


going to be an interesting experience.

The Spanish star performed well against Cagliari and sent a assist to Dusan Vlahovic to give his side their first home win since October. He joined Viola in the summer as a free agent and did not get much of a chance to play. He talked about his team's new situation.

The Spainiard told Sky Sport Italia:

"You live and die with results, there’s no denying it, and we needed this win like air,” Callejon told Sky Sport Italia.

“This victory brings life to the team, the fans, the club and everyone. We needed this.”

It was also a boost for the veteran, who has struggled to get playing time for Fiorentina since joining as a free agent.

“It was a bit of a strange period for me, as over the years I always played for Napoli, so wasn’t used to being on the bench.

“I am pig-headed, though, and I believe if you keep working, then that will pay off in the end.”

He added on confronting Napoli for the first time:

“It will be wonderful and also very strange, going back to the San Paolo after seven years as an opponent for the first time. It’ll be an experience."
