Verona keep faith in Pecchia

Verona have officially confirmed that the squad will be in ritiro and won't speak to the media, but Fabio Pecchia stays as Coach.

The Butei lost 3-0 to Crotone at the weekend, prompting protests from fans and speculation the tactician would be sacked.

However, the team will instead be put into a punitive training camp ahead of the trip to Fiorentina.

“At the end of a day of reflections and comparisons, the president of Hellas Verona FC Maurizio Setti has decided that the team will go into ritiro until a date which is yet to be decided,” a statement on the club’s website confirmed.

“The group, in view of the match with Fiorentina, will train at Imola under the guidance of Fabio Pecchia and his staff, with the first training session scheduled for Wednesday January 24.

“The club also announces that there will be a press silence for all employees.”
