Lo Monaco hints at Catania end

Pietro Lo Monaco has intimated that his time at Catania could be drawing to an end, even as he refuses to comment on speculation linking him to Fiorentina.

Sporting director Lo Monaco has been with the Sicilian outfit for over a decade, but suggested in an interview with Il Sole 24 ore on Monday that his time could be up.

“Everything in life has a beginning and everything has an end,” began the outspoken transfer guru, who resigned last summer after a fall-out with President Antonino Pulvirenti, only to be reinstated within days.

“After so many years we can feel that roads divide. Catania is built on a solid foundation that will see it go on, no matter who leads it.”

In light of Pantaleo Corvino’s confirmed departure from Fiorentina as sporting director this coming summer, the 57-year-old was quizzed on a potential switch to Florence.

“Would I go to Fiorentina? At the moment I have neither the heart nor the head to consider this kind of discussion. I want to end things well in Catania, then we’ll see.”

Lo Monaco has spent the day also commenting on speculation surrounding Gli Elefanti’s Coach Vincenzo Montella.
