The fairy tale of Chievo Verona, the little David fighting against the big Goliaths of the Serie A, seems to have come to an end during the summer. In fact, the Flying Donkeys, after achieving a fundamental safety in the last weeks of the season, were involved in a financial scandal. They were accused of falsifying the figures in the trading of players and risked being relegated to the Serie B. They were given some sort of pardon but Crotone, who ended up in the bottom three last May, appealed against such a decision and asked to play in Serie A in their stead. While, at the moment of writing, there are no news on the issue, Chievo Verona prepare themselves for the new campaign. Coach Lorenzo D’Anna, who led the team to salvation after replacing Rolando Maran at the end of April, was confirmed at the helm of the team. Unfortunately for him, Chievo Verona live on an extremely tight budget and this season was no exception. First of all, they had to sustain some big blows in terms of departures. Some old giants like Massimo Gobbi, Dario Dainelli and Alessandro Gamberini were all let go while Roberto Inglese returned to Napoli, who had acquired him in the past campaign. Another big loss is undoubtedly represented by Lucas Castro’s sale to Cagliari and by Samuel Bastien’s return to Belgium. Having lost all those players, Chievo Verona first tried to retain a few key men from last season like Emanuele Giaccherini from Napoli or Marius Stepinski from Nantes. Then, they opted to sign a free agent like Filip Djordjevic, who had had a positive first season at Lazio but, with the passing of time, had eventually ended forgotten in the sidelines. Other than that, they mostly saw the return of promising youths from loans all over Italy. Chievo Verona clearly have an incomplete squad at the moment and they need to sign at least one experienced player for each department.

Target


Chievo Verona will have to be fighting for their survival in the current season, provided that no worse penalty hits them for their financial misdemeanours. At the moment, they seem to be candidates for relegation.

Season Review
2018/2019

№20: Chievo Verona

Chievo's 11 year stay in the Italian top flight came to an end and the writing looked on the wall very early on. A 3 point deduction for false accounting in September would actually be academic in the end as, even without that penalty, the Flying Donkeys would have comfortably gone down. Lorenzo D’Anna was retained initially after keeping the club up in his short stint at the end of the the previous season but he was handicapped from the start. On top of the points deduction, he lost important players like top scorer Roberto Inglese, talented creator Lucas Castro and veterans like Massimo Gobbi, Alessandro Gamberini and Dario Dainelli. The effects were immediately felt as Chievo picked up just 1 point from their first 8 games of the season and D'Anna was let go. To the surprise of many, the club appointed a man who was Public Enemy Number One across the whole country in Giampiero Ventura. The veteran coach was coming off a disastrous tenure with the Italian national team who he failed to take to the World Cup. It seemed a doomed venture from the outset and ultimately that's how it played out as Ventura quit the club after just 4 games and 1 point. Chievo opted for a much more reliable appointment after Ventura as they brought back Domenico Di Carlo for a third spell at the helm. He had kept them up in the past but, despite some very respectable draws against the likes of Napoli, Lazio and Inter in his first few games in charge, the damage had already been done. It took until just before the new year for Chievo to get their first league win and it would be the only one they'd get before their relegation was inevitably confirmed in mid-April. In a season to forget, there weren't many standout performers. Stefano Sorrentino at 40 years old conceded the most goals in the league but somehow still managed to show his enduring quality - it was mostly the players in front of him that cost the team goals. The veteran produced a memorable performance to deny the great Cristiano Ronaldo a goal on his Serie A debut. The club said goodbye to their greatest ever goalscorer in Sergio Pellissier who retires at 40 and that certainly adds to the feeling that it is the end of an era at Chievo.
