Fiorentina immediately on the pitch, head to Twente

(ANSA) – FLORENCE, AUGUST 22 – After the derby with Empoli, finished 0-0 amid regrets and with a massive turnover, Fiorentina immediately took to the field to prepare for the return play-off scheduled for Thursday in the Netherlands, against Twente, which is worth the arrival in the group stage of the Conference League. ” Let’s go there and gamble our life ” declared the purple sporting director Daniele Pradè, demonstrating when qualification is considered fundamental.

The Italian team starts from the 2-1 success obtained at the Franchi last Thursday thanks to the goals of Nico Gonzalez and Cabral before the Dutch shortened in the second half with Cerny. Starting from a victory is always important but does not allow Fiorentina to rest on its laurels. In the meantime, the Viola coach will be able to count on the return of Igor, one of the team’s key points: the Brazilian central missed the first three games of the season due to a muscle injury but from today, as confirmed by himself through a message on social media , returned to training with his teammates, confirming his availability for Thursday’s decisive challenge in Enschede.

Fiorentina is also always active on the market: unless there are changes in the program, the signing of Czech midfielder Antonin Barak from Verona will be announced after the Dutch trip. An operation already largely defined on the basis of an onerous loan of two million with the right of redemption (which can become an obligation under specific conditions) around 12, while a 4-year contract is ready for the player at 1.3 million per season. The purple club is also evaluating some defenders to complete the department and one of the most popular names is that of 23-year-old Wout Faes of Reims. On the other hand Zurkowski (he could return to Empoli), Benassi and Nastasic are out. The situation of Kouamé is also pending, ended up in the crosshairs of Empoli. (HANDLE).
