Commisso: Expected more from Atalanta

Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso “expected something stronger” from Atalanta after Dalbert was racially abused by one of their fans.

Play was temporarily halted while a message was read out over the stadium speaker following racist insults aimed at Dalbert.

Fiorentina make their point

It was a result with very different sensations for Fiorentina, Juventus and the Scudetto rivals, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi.

In Florence, not all goalless draws are created equal. A share of the spoils with most teams visiting the Stadio Artemio Franchi might be a source of frustration and regret. Against Juventus, however, and especially after two defeats in a row to start their season, this one was priceless.

Chiesa should thank Fiorentina

Despite strong interest from Juventus, Fiorentina somehow managed to keep Federico Chiesa and Vilizar Yakimov thinks both player and club will benefit.

This time Federico is not going to Turin. Only two years after Juventus snatched up Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina, the Bianconeri tried to do the same with another young talent that is blossoming at the Artemio Franchi.

However, this time the champions were dealing with a completely different customer compared to the Bernardeschi days. La Viola’s new ownership, ambitious project and revived enthusiasm proved to be enough to keep Federico Chiesa out of Juve’s reach and the fans are loving it.
