Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella has expressed confidence in his team's new signing, Egypt winger Mohamed Salah, saying the player has showed promise quickly with the Italy side.
22-year-old attacker Salah joined Serie A side Fiorentina on loan from English Premier League giants Chelsea during the winter transfer window until the end on the current season after failing to book a regular place in the Blues' squad under the helm of coach Jose Mourinho.
He scored his first goal with Fiorentina and helped create the second during the 3-1 win over Sassuolo in the 23rd matchday of the Italy Serie A last week.
Fiorentina are set to face Tottenham in the 32th round of the Europa League Thursday.
"Salah is a very good player, he is used to playing at this level and although he has only been with us a short while, he has already shown very quickly that he is certainly up to playing very well in Italy and playing well for us,'' Montella told a press conference ahead of the Europa League game.
"I think we pulled off a bit of coup in signing Salah," Montella said.
