Bielsa up for Fiorentina or Verona?

There are some reports Marcelo Bielsa wants to leave Leeds United for a Serie A experience at Fiorentina or Hellas Verona.

L’Arena newspaper, which is based in Verona, cites ‘South American sources’ with the story of a potential switch to Italy, but only if Leeds don’t get promoted to the Premier League.

There could be a merry-go-round on the benches, because Verona’s current coach is Ivan Juric, who has been linked with Fiorentina and West Ham United.

This report points out that Bielsa loves a challenge and could be intrigued by Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso’s projects for the future.

Of course, El Loco had already signed for Lazio in the summer of 2016, only to suddenly not turn up for his presentation press conference.

Stuck with no coach and the season starting, the Biancocelesti turned back to their caretaker manager Simone Inzaghi, who went on to win two Italian Super Cups and the Coppa Italia.
