Montella Fiorentina favourite?

Vincenzo Montella is emerging as the prime candidate to take over Fiorentina next season, as interim Coach Vincenzo Guerini debuts today.

The Viola sacked Sinisa Mihajlovic in November and axed Delio Rossi this week after he physically attacked Adem Ljajic.

Guerini was promoted from team manager to caretaker Coach and makes his debut in Fiorentina’s match with Lecce at 17.00 UK time today.

Montella is in action this evening when Catania visit his former club Roma and it’s rumoured he is the hot favourite to take the Stadio Artemio Franchi job next season.

Newspaper La Nazione has other options, including current Zenit Coach Luciano Spalletti, who this week stated he has no intention of returning to Italy as there is “too much stress.”

Gian Piero Gasperini is ready to get back to work after Inter sacked him just five games into his reign, while ex-Fiorentina and Brazil hero Carlos Dunga is interested.
