Zeman ignores Fiorentina link

Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman has cooled speculation that he could become the new Coach of Fiorentina.

The Viola are in need of a tactician following the recent axing of Delio Rossi and the Czech is one of numerous names being linked.

“A future at Fiorentina? I’m just thinking about Pescara in a bid to do as well as possible until the end of the season,” he said after last night’s rescheduled Livorno tie.

“I’m only thinking about our final two games now. Once they are over then we can discuss other things.”

The tactician was also asked about the possibility of playmaker Marco Verratti moving to Juventus over the summer.

“He’s an important player,” Zeman added. “I don’t know if he would find room at Juventus though, I think he needs the chance to play in Serie A.

“He’s already quite a good player and I hope that he continues to grow.”
