Pezzella returns as captain for Fiorentina

Fiorentina defender German Pezzella will return as captain when Beppe Iachini’s men face Spezia.

La Nazione reveals the centre-back will be back against Spezia and reclaim the captaincy at Fiorentina.

Federico Chiesa wore the armband in his last match for the Viola against Sampdoria last time, when the Blucerchiati won 2-1 at the Artemio Franchi.

The Italy international has since moved to Juventus and as Pezzella returns to the line-up, the newspaper reveals the captaincy will return to its rightful owner.

Rumours had emerged that Franck Ribery could take over the captaincy in Florence, as he wore the armband in an inspiring performance against Inter at San Siro.

The 29-year-old has missed the first three games of the season due to coronavirus.
