Fiorentina attacker Christian Kouamé applauded his side’s determination after they completed a comeback in the final five minutes to win 2-1 over Roma in Tuscany.

Luka Jovic and Jonathan Ikone scored in the 85th and 88th minutes respectively to earn La Viola a win over the Giallorossi just days following defeat to Inter in the Coppa Italia final.

“It was important to win today to improve our morale after Wednesday,” Kouamé told DAZN.

“Having to face a great team like Roma after losing a final to Inter wasn’t easy. However, we did well to play our football, especially in the second half and bring home the three points.”
