Benassi: Staying at Fiorentina

Fiorentina midfielder Marco Benassi has denied that he is close to joining Genoa. “I haven’t given even half-a-second’s thought to leaving...”

Benassi reportedly did not fit into Vincenzo Montella’s plans for next season, prompting Genoa to swoop in.

However, the 24-year-old has travelled with Fiorentina for preseason, where he made it clear he would not be changing clubs ‘on my own free will’.

“I haven’t given even half-a-second’s thought to leaving,” he said at a Press conference.

“I talked to the directors about my future and I reiterated my thoughts: that I’d never leave on my own free will because I want to prove that Fiorentina have other objectives.

“I haven’t encountered many problems under Montella. In terms of midfield, things haven’t changed that much.”
