Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso is ‘convinced that Gennaro Gattuso will help us to progress’ and guarantees ‘determination, competence and desire to win.’
The former Napoli coach was appointed this afternoon, having parted company with the Partenopei on Sunday night.
“I’m very happy to be able to announce to the Viola fans that Gennaro Gattuso will be the next Fiorentina coach,” President Commisso told the official club website.
“I’m convinced that Gattuso – who is a young coach but already has lots of experience – will help us to progress. His professional and personal background shows that he will bring determination, competence and desire to our club.
“He will help us in our growth and his professional and human history represent for the club an important guarantee of determination, competence and desire to win.
“I would like to thank the senior management team for their hard work in completing such an important appointment for the future of our club within days of the season finishing.”
