Fiorentina president slams Juventus: “They stole Chiesa from us.”

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso has taken a shot at Juventus for their signing of Federico Chiesa from La Viola last summer.

Commisso was talking to the press recently after he received a special plaque as a tribute to his Calabrian roots. He was asked various questions by the journalists and he took the opportunity to take an aim at not just Juve, but clubs like Barcelona and Inter too.

The La Viola president claimed: “How did they buy Chiesa? They stole him from us. Because they gave him a lot of money. Here’s the difference between us and Juve: the more revenues you have, the more you can spend. There are clubs like Juventus, Barcelona and Inter who are in debt for dirty work.”

Commisso also talked about Vlahovic in the interview, saying that the Serbian is being handed the most financially rewarding contract in club history and owes the club something for that.
