Fiorentina, Cesare Prandelli resigned


Cesare Prandelli resigned as Fiorentina coach. The former national team coach returned to the purple bench last November in place of Beppe Iachini, now in pole position to return to the helm of the Gigliati. Fiorentina, defeated in the last round by Milan at the Franchi for 3-2, are fifth from bottom in the standings with 29 points on par with Spezia and Benevento.


“I am aware that my coaching career can end here, but I have no regrets and I do not want to have any. Probably this world that I have been a part of all my life, is no longer for me and I no longer recognize myself in it. For sure I will be. I changed and the world goes faster than I thought. For this reason, I believe that now the time has come to stop being carried away by this speed and to stop to find who I really am “., wrote Prandelli in a letter published on the website of Fiorentina in which he formalizes his resignation.

“This is the second time I leave Fiorentina – writes the former Azzurri coach -. The first at the behest of others, today because of my decision. In the life of each one, as well as beautiful things, waste accumulates, poisons that sometimes you present the bill all together. In this moment of my life I find myself in an absurd discomfort that does not allow me to be who I am. I embarked on this new experience with joy and love, also carried away by the enthusiasm of the new ownership. the too much love for the city, for the memory of the good sporting moments that I lived there that I was blind to the first signs that something was wrong, something was not exactly in its place inside of me “.

“My decision is dictated by the enormous responsibility that I have first of all for the players and for the club, but not least for the respect I owe to the Fiorentina fans – continues Prandelli -. Whoever goes on the pitch at this level, has no doubt a specific talent, those with talent are sensitive and I would never want my discomfort to be perceived and to affect the team’s performance. In recent months a shadow has grown inside me that has also changed my way of seeing things. here to give 100%, but as soon as I had the feeling that this was no longer possible, for the good of all I decided this step backwards. I thank Rocco Commisso and all his wonderful family, Joe Barone and Daniele Pradè, always close to me and to the team, but above all I thank Florence, who I know will be able to understand.
