The summer 2019 will be remembered by Fiorentina supporters as one of big changes. In fact, they saw the departure of the Della Valle family after 15 years in command. They sold the club to an Italian-American entrepreneur Rocco Commisso, who promised a return among the top teams. Even though his return to Fiorentina at the end of the past campaign was far from impressive, they obtained just 2 draws in 7 games, Vincenzo Montella was confirmed at the helm. He will have to deal with a completely different squad, though. No less than 7 starters have left, being sold or having their loans from other clubs come to an end. While the likes of Lafont, Pjaca, Vitor Hugo and Gerson will not be missed, Veretout and Muriel were among the few who did well in the past campaign, together with Chiesa. While retaining the Italian international was by far the best move they could make, Fiorentina management rejuvenated the squad, while also injecting some experience into it. So, the young Dragowski, returning from a loan to Empoli, should be given a start in goal, while the promising Lirola and Rasmussen should be acting at right-back and centre-back respectively. Experience was added to the midfield where Badelj, back after a forgettable stint at Lazio, and Pulgar, who made his name at Bologna, will fill the holes left by the departed Veretout and Edimilson. Boateng is the sole new offensive player they have hired thus far, and this might be a problem, if Simeone fails to deliver as he did most of last season. Not too surprisingly, Fiorentina are still looking for depth in the midfield and for another forward.

Target


Fiorentina aim at a place in the top 10 but they still seem to be lacking something, and might have to content themselves with a quiet salvation.

Season Review
2018/2019

№16: Fiorentina

Fiorentina will surely take the award for biggest disappointment of the season. They started the campaign looking like potential challengers for the top 4 but ended it sweating on their Serie A status. With an average age of around 23, the Viola are one of the youngest squads in Europe and for that reason alone, their inconsistency can almost be expected but not to the extent that they should be fighting to stay in the top flight on the final day of the season. Stefano Pioli took charge for the vast majority of the season. His best achievement was getting the team to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia where they were overpowered by an excellent Atalanta side. In the league, they were simply inconsistent and indecisive. They drew 17 Serie A matches - the most in the league. After a run of just 1 win in 11 games, Pioli resigned after an embarrassing home defeat against Frosinone but there were also issues between him and club behind the scenes which left a sour taste. The board recalled Vincenzo Montella who forged a reputation as one of the brightest young coaches around in his first stint in Florence but he has failed to hit the same heights since and it hasn't been the happy reunion that Viola fans would have wished for. He failed to win any of the 8 games he was in charge of and, if the season had gone on any longer, the club may well have faced an unthinkable relegation. Despite the doom and gloom, this isn't a bad squad of players. Federico Chiesa is one of the best young talents in Italy and often dragged the team out of difficult situations on his own. However, at 21 years old, it's hard to keep asking him to be the saviour and sometimes his over-eagerness to fulfill that role is detrimental to the team. Luis Muriel provided a spark after arriving in January with some electric performances up front whilst Alban Lafont looks a promising young goalkeeper. There is more than enough talent there to do a lot better than a 16th place finish but is Montella the right man to lead them forward or is he a former flame that's better left in the past? It's a big summer for Fiorentina and they can't afford to get it as horribly wrong as they have this season.
