Fiorentina President Andrea Della Valle has described Friday’s decision to reduce Borja Valero’s ban by one match as a ‘defeat for football.’
The Viola chief is extremely disappointed that that the punishment has not been completely overturned.
“It’s a defeat for football,” Della Valle told violachannel.tv.
“We have now lost the chance to begin a journey based on having constructive dialogue, even though the television images were very clear.
“Most of all I am disappointed for the boy, who did not deserve all of this.”
