    Fiorentina SACK Giuseppe Iachini and appoint former Italy manager Cesare Prandelli for second spell

    Fiorentina SACK boss Giuseppe Iachini and appoint former Italy manager Cesare Prandelli for second spell… a decade after he left Viola

    • Fiorentina have sacked manager Giuseppe Iachini with the club 12th in Serie A
    • The Italian led the club to 10th last season after joining in December 2019 
    • Former Italy and Roma boss Cesare Prandelli will replace Iachini in Tuscany 

    Fiorentina have lost patience with Giuseppe Iachini less than a year after the Italian’s appointment, bringing back Cesare Prandelli as his replacement. 

    Viola sit 12th in Serie A after a rocky start to 2020-21, with a drab 0-0 draw against Parma enough to convince the board to call on Prandelli, who was reportedly being line-up before the match. 

    Prandelli became Fiorentina’s longest serving manager during his spell between 2005 and 2010, guiding them to the UEFA Cup semi-final and two fourth-place finishes in Serie A before leaving to manage his national team.  

    Giuseppe Iachini has been sacked by Fiorentina after Viola began the season in poor form 

    A poor performance against Parma in a 0-0 draw on Saturday was enough to seal his fate

    Prandelli will be a popular appointment in Tuscany, with Viola aiming to return to the heights the Italian side reached under him.  

    ‘ACF Fiorentina announce Giuseppe Iachini has been replaced by Cesare Prandelli as the team’s head coach,’ Fiorentina said in a statement. 

    ‘Iachini had to manage a particularly difficult situation during the last season and, in a very complicated general context, managed to raise the fate of the team by finishing the championship in tenth place.

    ‘Unfortunately, after a careful and scrupulous analysis of the start of this new season and the results obtained to date, the club believes that the best solution is to dismiss the current coach.

    ‘The President and the entire Viola Board wish to express their gratitude to Beppe Iachini and all his staff for the commitment and professionalism they have shown since their arrival and wish him the best professional success for his career.

    ‘The new Viola coach will direct his first training session on Tuesday afternoon.’    

    Prandelli led Italy to the European Championships final in 2012, losing 4-0 to Spain before being dismissed following a below-par group stage exit at the 2014 World Cup.
