Pizarro: 'I'm with Fiorentina'

David Pizarro apologised to Fiorentina fans for handing in a transfer request and revealed what was behind it.

The Viola squad had its pre-season presentation on Friday night in Moena and the Chilean midfielder took the microphone.

“What went wrong at the end of the season? Nothing, it’s just that like all the fans I was upset by what happened,” said Pizarro.

“I was very disappointed. Will I stay here? Yes, we’ll challenge for trophies, unless something else happens.”

The former Roma, Inter and Manchester City midfielder’s comments were clearly directed at the controversial refereeing decisions that marred the final few weeks of the campaign.

Fiorentina finished fourth after challenging Milan for third until the last couple of rounds.

Pizarro’s agent had declared straight after the final match of the season that he wanted a transfer abroad, but it seems he has now calmed down.
