Pezzella: 'Fiorentina carry on where we left off'

Fiorentina captain German Pezzella trusts they can ‘carry on where we left off’ last season in today’s Serie A opener with Torino.

It kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“We had a good run of games after the lockdown, so we want to carry on where we left off,” Pezzella told Sky Sport Italia.

“The team has barely changed, aside from three important new signings, so we intend to build on those strengths we had and add those new qualities.”

President Rocco Commisso is in Florence and at the Stadio Franchi for today’s game, after a quarantine period following his travel from COVID-19 hotspot the United States of America.

“President Commisso brings so much energy, especially this week, as he’d been away from Italy for so many months. He felt it important to be here with us to begin the new season and we’re forming a great group, both on and off the field, to take Fiorentina to new heights.”
