Pasqual on Prandelli relationship

Fiorentina captain Manuel Pasqual has described his relationship with Cesare Prandelli as a rollercoaster.

The defender played under the now Galatasaray boss for both the Viola and the Italian national team.

“In 2009 things were not going well,” Pasqual admitted to reporters. “I wasn’t playing, the Coach didn’t see me and I was often in the stands.

“But the club convinced me to stay, the director Corvino did everything to keep hold of me.

“Prandelli? My relationship with the boss was a rollercoaster. Great peaks when things were good and great lows. At times we didn’t get on.

“Though I do acknowledge I was able to change his mind. He called me back into the Nazionale and gave me new confidence.”
