Vincenzo Montella was interviewed by Sky Sport Italia after his side’s 5-1 win against Austria Wien in Europa League. 

On the victory: “The defeat against Lazio left its mark, but today I enjoyed the spirit, the interpretation. The team played with speed, killing the game right away.

Then, we did very well defensively. There has been a small drop in tension and we have to work, but we are happy with this victory. Now, we have to work hard to prepare for the Udinese game.”

On the form: “We have built this squad while thinking of utilizing the three-man defence. Now, Romagnoli is back and we had to wait for him.”

On André Silva: “He is hungry, he also scores goals. Today he was able to exploit his features, by attacking the spaces. He was much better today than in other games. This will give him some much-needed confidence.”

On closing the game straight away: “In other games, we didn’t close the game immediately, but tonight we managed to do so. We have to think about mental retention during the game, conditions can easily change.”

On Calhanoglu: “He made a very good performance, he was able to put his teammates into good opportunities today. He is very talented.
