Cesare Prandelli resigns and leaves the bench of the Fiorentina. And he does so with a letter, posted on the purple team website. “I’m aware that my coaching career can end here, but I have no regrets and I don’t want to have any. Probably – we read – 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. I will certainly have changed and the world goes faster than I thought. For this I think now the time has come to stop being carried away by this speed and to stop and find who I really am “writes Prandelli in the letter published on the site, in which he formalizes his resignation as manager of the viola club.
“This is the second time I have left Fiorentina – writes the former Azzurri coach -. The first at the behest of others, today because of my decision. In everyone’s life, in addition to beautiful things, waste accumulates, poisons that sometimes present you 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 property. And it is probably too much love for the city, for the memory of the good moments of sport 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 above all for the players and for the club, ma not least for the respect I owe to the Fiorentina fans – continues Prandelli -. Whoever goes on the pitch at this level undoubtedly has a specific talent, whoever has talent is sensitive and I would never want my discomfort to be perceived and affect the team’s performance. In recent months, a shadow has grown inside me that has also changed my way of seeing things. I came 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 to take my step back. I thank Rocco Commisso and all his wonderful family, Joe Barone and Daniele Pradè, always close to me and the team, but above all I thank Florence that I know she will be able to understand“.
