Fiorentina manager Giuseppe Iachini was pleased with Alfred Duncan on his debut against Sampdoria, saying he "has the right skill".
The 26-year old Ghana international - who is a loan signing from Sassuolo and just recovered from a hamstring injury - played for 71 minutes and was replaced by Marco Benassi.
He received loud cheers from the crowd as he walked off the pitch.
"He’s a boy I know, I knew what he can give us," Iachini told the media.
"He has the right skill and he knows how to shoot.
"He started the game but this shouldn’t be seen as a rejection for Marco Benassi or Erick Pulgar.”
Benassi and Pulgar have been regulars for La Viola this season, but started on the bench for this game.
Duncan will hope to be in action again when Fiorentina take on AC Milan on Saturday evening
