As the Viola’s season came to an end, Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso staged a final press conference where he detailed Vincenzo Italiano’s first year at the club.

Commisso used this opportunity to criticise Roma’s league record.

“I read many famous journalists about Roma’s so-called great job,” he said.

“This year they finished a point ahead of us, spending 10 million gross on Mourinho and having spent €140 million on the summer market and in the end they finished only one point further up the table.”

“Ours was a phenomenal success. There’s a lot to be proud of,” he concluded.
