Pioli coy on Fiorentina future

Stefano Pioli confessed ‘I still haven’t decided whether I’ll stay or leave’ after Fiorentina ‘came up short’ against Cagliari on Friday.

Cagliari condemned Fiorentina to their fourth game without a win, beating the Viola 2-1 to leave Pioli - whose contract expires this summer - lamenting what could have been in Sardinia.

Pioli: Decisive two months

Stefano Pioli has hinted that he will only stay on as Fiorentina Coach if he takes the club into Europe or wins the Coppa Italia.

A run of just one win in seven games has left Fiorentina seven points off the pace for a Europa League spot in Serie A and fail to make home advantage count in their Coppa Italia semi-final against Atalanta.

“[Federico] Chiesa is better and may be able to play tomorrow night,” Pioli, whose contract expires at the end of the season, said at a Press conference.

Pioli hints at Fiorentina exit

Stefano Pioli “expected it to be tough” after a 1-1 draw with Lazio, but hinted he might not be at Fiorentina next season.

Ciro Immobile’s scorcher flew into the far top corner, but the visitors had several other chances, including one that Pietro Terracciano – making his Viola debut for injured Alban Lafont – palmed on to the upright.

Federico Chiesa went off injured, forcing a reshuffle, but Luis Muriel equalised with a touch of class on the Kevin Mirallas assist.
