The Tuscan club announced on their official website that Vincenzo Montella is their new coach, signing a two-year contract.

Montella, who impressively managed Catania in the last season, has been insistently linked to take his former club Roma job, eventually the deal failed and the Giallorossi appointed Zdenek Zeman.

He replaces Delio Rossi, who was sacked towards the end of last season after punching his own player Adem Ljajic during Fiorentina’s 2-2 draw with relegation rivals Novara.
