Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso flew in for today’s Juventus showdown. “Federico Chiesa, get us a goal! Franck Ribery is exceptional.”
It kicks off at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.
The patron arrived late last night from New York and immediately spoke to Sky Sport Italia at the airport.
“I said that I’d be back for this game and I’m here. We’re going to have fun and everyone is waiting to see what happens. I expect a very entertaining match with respect for everyone.
“Our team will give their all and then we’ll see what happens. The Fiorentina fans care a lot about this match and so do I.”
Chiesa had tried to push through a summer transfer to Juventus, so Commisso was asked about the winger and if a goal will be rewarded with a contract extension.
“I saw him play for Italy against Finland and he did really well. Federico, if you can hear me, get us a goal! A new contract? We’ll see.”
It’s possible Ribery will be given his first start in the Viola jersey after a free transfer from Bayern Munich.
“Ribery is exceptional. I heard of how he’s working with and advising the young players, so he has experience, but also heart.”
Commisso has confessed to being a Juventus fan in his youth and urged the Fiorentina supporters to refrain from offensive or insulting chants.
