The thing that pisses me off most about Montella is that the guy is not serious, professionally.
Just look at his interviews, like the one where he says, asking: Why can’t Fiorentina beat Sevilla 5-0? When he was 3-0 down from the first leg against us in the semis of EL.
Then weeks before getting sacked by Milan, he was joking around saying: It won’t be surprising if I get sacked today, or something similar to that. He simply doesn’t give a crap about the job and jokes around all the time.
A good thing is that he plays attacking football, but his 4-3-3 is similar to Berizzo, and it would take a great January transfer window to change things for the better. This team has shown that it is not ready for a 4-3-3 formation, simply clueless in that.
Maybe, just maybe we needed a coach that transitions defense to attack quickly, bringing back the deadly counters of the Emery era, and there were sayings that we could have that with Javi Gracia.
Now of course, this decision could’ve been hugely impacted by Maresca’s inclusion in the deal as an assistant manager, but I really doubt Montella will add anything positive, and if not, we shouldn’t give him more time and sack him in June. Hopefully the contract is not too lucrative or long-term so that we have to stick to Montella even if he fails, just because of the money.
Sevilla’s management once again showed that they are not in for a serious project. Otherwise, they would have signed someone like Tuchel, and turn this team around to the exciting play, good counters and the glory days that they once had, lastly with Emery (missing the 2014-15 season a lot).
This could very well be just another Prandelli case. He resigned after 3 bad months, but I doubt Montella will do the same. He failed badly at Milan and waited to be sacked. These coaches are never good.
On the other hand though, I would loooove to be proven wrong on this!
