Barone: Never with Agnelli

Fiorentina consigliere Joe Barone insists he was joking about doing a lap around the field with Juventus’ Andrea Agnelli, ‘not even for $2bn.’

Barone told Tuttosport that he would take to the Artemio Franchi pitch with Agnelli on Saturday, despite the strong rivalry that exists between Fiorentina and Juve.

However, he later clarified at Pedro’s official unveiling: “That was just a joke, it’s impossible.

“I wouldn’t do it for even $2bn, given all the work we’re doing at Fiorentina.”

The Italo-American joined the Viola over the summer, as part of the new-look board installed by Rocco Commisso.
