When they started the past season, Hellas Verona were considered as relegation fodder and they managed to surprise everybody achieving a quiet salvation thanks to an entertaining and hyper-offensive football. In fact, they hold one main regret: had they managed to avoid collapsing once the campaign re-started following the end of the Covid-19 break, they could have achieved an historical qualification to the Europa League – they last played in Europe in 1988. Coach Juric, the architect of their successes, was tempted to leave for pastures new, especially once he found out that he would have had to deal with a completely renewed squad, but eventually accepted the new challenge and remained at the helm of the team. As previously mentioned, Juric will have to make do without several of the protagonists of the past season. In fact, the likes of Pessina, Verre, Borini, Rrahmani and, above all, Amrabat had to return to their parent clubs or were simply let go. And many other members of the past squad were shown the door too. With no less than 10 players quitting, Hellas Verona logically had to hire some valid alternatives, while not wasting too much money. So, they obtained Cetin on loan from Roma and he could very well fight for a start in the back 3 together with Magnani, arriving from Sassuolo. Gunter and Badu saw their loans turned into permanent deals. The major investment was made on Tameze, who played – little - for Atalanta in the last semester, and will be asked to replace Amrabat in the heart of the midfield and of their supporters. On the other hand, Ruegg is expected to represent an alternative to extraordinary Lazovic on the right flank. Hellas Verona are still on the hunt for a defender and a full-back, a quality midfielder and a prolific striker, as last season they scored 47 goals only, even worse than relegated Lecce.

Target


They aim at a quiet salvation but they might be involved in the struggle against relegation as they have lost most of the quality they had last season.

Season Review
2019/2020

№9: Hellas Verona

Many people's odds-on favourites to go straight back down to Serie B, Hellas Verona provided another feel good story for Italian football fans this season. A team who came up through the play-offs and with a very modestly assembled squad would be expected to adopt a pragmatic approach in order to stay in the top flight. New manager Ivan Juric had other ideas. A student of Gian Piero Gasperini, the Croatian mimicked Atalanta's high octane style of football. Quick passing and aggressive pressing from the front. It was a brave philosophy but one that not only drew plaudits but proved effective. Verona started the season in modest but effective fashion, picking up points against expected rivals towards the bottom of the table and losing to most of the top teams. Things really started to click into gear going into the new year when the Gialloblu went on a 9 match unbeaten run in Serie A which including a superb and well deserved victory over champions Juventus. The Coronavirus pandemic struck at the worst time for Hellas and, with their safety virtually assured, their motivation waned when football returned in June. Just 1 win in their final 9 games saw them drop out of European contention and finish 9th, but the very fact this can be seen as a letdown shows how far the club has come this season. There were no star names in the Hellas Verona squad but instead a well oiled team of consistent performers. The likes of Marash Kumbulla and Amir Rrahmani were part of a defence that managed to keep 10 clean sheets in the league. Davide Faraoni and Darko Lazovic provided goals and assists from the wing-back positions. Sofyan Amrabat stitched everything together with some colossal performances in the heart of midfield. Unfortunately for Juric - many of his top names are likely to be poached by bigger clubs. Some already have. The Croatian will hope to follow his mentor Gasperini who has always been able to find solutions despite losing some of his best players.
