coach Vincenzo has heaped praise on following his club’s triumph against AS Roma in the .

Fiorentina have advanced to the Europa League’s quarter-finals after beating Roma 4-1 on aggregate, with the international delivering another quality performance and hitting the woodwork twice.

“Salah-Cuadrado? So far we had the better deal,” Montella told Sport Mediaset.

“We already knew Salah’s characteristics, but honestly I didn’t expect him to be that decisive for us and have such a fast impact in Italian football,” he added.

“He [Salah] is one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen, perhaps Messi is the only player faster than him with the ball,” Montella concluded.

The Viola will know their opponent in the Europa League’s quarter-finals as the draw is expected to take place on March 20th in Nyon.

Fiorentina’s next game in the Serie A will be against Udinese next Sunday.
