Official: Fiorentina sack Montella

Vincenzo Montella has been sacked as Fiorentina Coach, a statement declaring it to be 'for the good of the club'.

It was widely known that the Viola were considering the former striker’s future, after recent comments deemed to be critical of the club.

“ACF Fiorentina have interpreted the recent behaviour of Coach Vincenzo Montella as the clear desire to break from a contract legitimately signed two years ago,” a statement announced.

“It contains a clause which the Coach no longer believes to be in his interest, but to which he agreed at the time.

“So, with great regret we must take note of the fact that there is no longer the relationship of trust necessary for the continuation of any relationship, and we are therefore forced - for the good of the club - to sack Vincenzo Montella.

“This sudden situation has obviously created organisational problems which we must resolve urgently.

“We would have expected clearer, more respectful and less ambiguous behaviour from the Coach, in respect of the shirt, the fans and the club which has given him so much.”
