Fiorentina beat Verona in friendly

Fiorentina beat Hellas Verona 2-1 in a pre-season friendly with goals from Giovanni Simeone and Federico Chiesa.

Stefano Pioli opted to take on Serie B outfit Verona and their new Coach Fabio Grosso in the third friendly of the summer.

Cholito Simeone broke the deadlock on 26 minutes when he was at full stretch to meet a Marco Benassi cross.

Verona fought back immediately, equalising within four minutes through new signing Karamoko Cisse thanks in part to some static defending.

Fresh-faced Fiorentina

With young talent Alban Lafont, Marco Pjaca and Mario Pasalic on the way, Giancarlo Rinaldi feels Fiorentina fans can get excited at last.

This is a summer of uncertainty, anticipation and excitement in Florence. The Viola, clearly, have a more than passing interest in Milan’s European fate. But while that decision is dragging on longer than the declaration of a new Pope, a string of intriguing young players are being linked with a move to Tuscany.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Pjaca has rejected the chance to join Valencia as part of the deal that takes Joao Cancelo to Juve.

This would be because the winger ‘wants to relaunch his career’ at Fiorentina, whose Coach Stefano Pioli ‘appreciates him’ in return and ‘sees him well’ in a front three with Simeone and Chiesa.
