Valon Behrami has thanked Fiorentina for bringing him back to the Switerzeland side. “I wanted a return to Italy with all my strength.”
The former Lazio wide man had a difficult spell at West Ham, but joined the Viola during the January transfer window.
“It's wonderful to be back in the Switzerland side and I am here thanks to Fiorentina, who allowed me to play regularly,” said Behrami.
“My family and I are happy again at last. After the World Cup I returned to West Ham, but it wasn't easy to overcome the disappointment of that.
“I slowly managed and started to play again, but I no longer felt at ease in London.
“Then, finally, I had the opportunity to come back to Serie A. I wanted a return to Italy with all my strength.”
