Gattuso and De Zerbi reject Fiorentina

According to Sky Sport Italia, Gennaro Gattuso and Roberto De Zerbi have rejected the chance to become the Fiorentina coach next season, meaning Ivan Juric remains the sole candidate for the job.

La Viola are facing a tumultuous season with Beppe Iachini sacked in November, only to return to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in March, after Cesare Prandelli had resigned.

However, the former Palermo coach is not expected to stay in Florence long-term as the Tuscans are looking for a new coach for next season.

Fiorentina have contacted both Gennaro Gattuso and Roberto De Zerbi, but according to Sky Sport Italia, the duo has rejected the chance to take the job from next season.

Gattuso is expected to leave Napoli in June, while De Zerbi has recently refused to rule out his Sassuolo exit.

Both coaches wanted to revolutionize the team, using a completely different playing style than the current one.

According to the report, Verona coach Ivan Juric remains the only candidate for the Fiorentina job next season.

It remains to be seen whether the former assistant of Gian Piero Gasperini will agree to move to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in the summer.
