Giuseppe Iachini returns to the helm of Fiorentina after the resignation of Cesare Prandelli. The purple club made it official in a press release, underlining that the coach will direct the team’s training in the morning at the “Davide Astori” sports center. Five national teams were absent for the first week: Biraghi, Castrovilli, Amrabat, Milenkovic and Vlahovic. Compared to the autumn, Iachini will not find Lirola, Cutrone and Duncan who have been sold while he will face up to Vlahovic who grew up in the goal zone. It cannot be ruled out that Callejon will be relaunched, a player who arrived to replace Chiesa on his recommendation last summer. But the primary objective remains salvation.
Exempted in November 2020, more for lack of play than points, Iachini returns to the saddle with the same task for which he was hired in the last championship: sto raise Fiorentina from the Serie B specter. Having accepted Prandelli’s resignation, the company contacted him and enthusiastically collected his desire to get back to work with the team.
Iachini has his contract expiring in June 2021, he will direct the last ten games of a championship that is cursed for Fiorentina from the beginning. It is up to him to raise the average points that with the coach he has just greeted was just one per game. Before being sacked, Beppe had been on the bench seven times during this championship, scoring eight points.
