Joe Barone, Fiorentina’s General Manager, recently spoke out about the summer rumours that Vincenzo Italiano would be moving to Napoli. This, after the departure of Luciano Spalletti. For him, there was never any question of leaving, as the Viola coach was under contract. He stated that Spalletti had never even intended to leave the club to sign for the Azzurri.
“Vincenzo Italiano had a contract with Fiorentina. And contracts are respected. It seems to me that De Laurentiis thinks so too. We are people of our word. And Vincenzo never came to see me to say he wanted to leave. A contract is a contract”, said GM Joe Barone to Il Mattino.
