Prandelli says Ribery has doubts to play against Inter

Fiorentina coach, Cesare Prandelli warns Franck Ribery is uncertain to play against Inter tomorrow, as they already lack Gaetano Castrovilli and Nikola Milenkovic.

It starts on Friday at 19.45 GMT.

“We had a slight problem for Ribery and will have to evaluate him tomorrow morning,”

the coach announced in his press conference.

“Our recent performances have been pretty good, as we increased the intensity level. We are not a team that make many passes, but we do know how to get into the opposition penalty area fairly regularly.

"We just have to focus on our concentration and avoiding errors. The players must think positive on the ball and negative without it.”

Inter stand second in Serie A and are in the Coppa Italia semi-final, that's why Antonio Conte has fascinated



“It’s a team capable of going all the way in Serie A, as they have a consolidated style of football and defend like a tank. We must be very balanced and solid to counteract their strengths.

“I hope my team is relishing how wonderful it is to play games at this level and prove we’re up to the task. Romelu Lukaku is a difficult forward to mark, as he roams all over the front line, but Lucas Martinez Quarta did well against him up until the last minute of extra time in the Coppa Italia. He was fouled on the decisive goal and couldn’t do any more than that.

“Martinez Quarta has character and good technique, but what he mustn’t do is try to go beyond his limits or what is asked of him.”

Aleksandar Kokorin and Kevin Malcuit, who are the new signings, arrived on transfer deadline day, but



emphasizes that the Russian

"needs at least three weeks of training. Malcuit is on the bench and can play about half-an-hour.”

With Castrovilli suspended, we could observe Borja Valero play against his ex-team.

“He already knows Inter well, but I still have some doubts on the different options.”
