Mutu makes Fiorentina promise

Adrian Mutu has confirmed that he won't celebrate should he score against Fiorentina this weekend.

Cesena host the Viola at the Dino Manuzzi desperate for points after a problematic start to the campaign.

"It'll be very emotional for me," the Romanian international noted following his summer move from Fiorentina to the Seahorses.

"The Viola fans were always very good to me and it is out of respect to them that I won't celebrate if I do manage to score.

"However, this doesn't mean that I don't want to win the game. I'll give my all to try to make sure that happens.

"Nevertheless, it wouldn't be right to celebrate because of the relationship that I have had with Florence and its people."

The 32-year-old joined the Tuscan giants in the summer of 2006 after previous club Juventus were demoted to Serie B.

Cesena, despite their significant summer recruitment policy, have netted just one point from five games so far.

They are joint bottom with Bologna, two points behind Lecce and three adrift of Inter and Atalanta.
