Viola coach not dwelling on the past.
Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella is looking at Juan Cuadrado’s departure to Chelsea as a break up after insisting that he has already moved on, the Daily Express reports.

The Colombian international made his move to west London official on transfer deadline day with Blues flop Mohamed Salah heading in the opposite direction on loan for the rest of the season.
And though Montella wishes all the best for the £26.8m ace, a 2-0 victory over Roma in the Copa Italia this week gave him cause to believe that the future is bright without him.
“We can say that we have forgotten about Juan Cuadrado,” Montella said.
“Unfortunately he has gone, but before leaving we wished him good luck.
“We celebrated with him because he is going to play in a great environment, but we must look at the present and, above all, to the future with the players we’ve got, who give us ample opportunities.”
Cuadrado could make his Chelsea debut in this weekend’s visit to Aston Villa.
