Fiorentina official Joe Barone was adamant that Federico Chiesa didn’t deserve a booking for diving versus Brescia on Monday evening.
“It was not a well-deserved booking,” Rocco Commisso’s right-hand man revealed to FirenzeViola. “I hope this is not a show of prejudice against Federico.
“He does not only represent the future of Fiorentina, but of all Italian football, and he needs to be better protected. Versus Brescia, it was not a dive and the booking was undeserved.
“Let’s hope it doesn’t happen again.”
