Fiorentina, Salvione: “I hope that the Conference League is set as a goal”
During the week Sabatino Durante, FIFA agent, valued Roma’s victory in the Conference League, in particular for the economic aspect: next season will Fiorentina have to leave with the aim of winning this competition? “I hope that Fiorentina will set this goal, the victory of Roma has shown how much awareness of the European path is relevant, in addition to the economic aspect which is advantageous for the company coffers. Winning a European trophy is fascinating especially from an emotional point of view, the Giallorossi fans have experienced days of celebration and have found their enthusiasm. The emotional aspect is therefore important to underline more than the economic aspect. Correlating the situation to Napoli, it is a factor that is missing from the blue square, which has lost enthusiasm in recent years “.
Perhaps Napoli too should therefore aim to continue their journey within the cups: is there a need for them to start again with this mentality at home as well? “I am convinced that Spalletti has all the will to play for the Champions League with great enthusiasm and desire to do well, as well as in the league. To play the Cups at a high level, you need a competitive squad in order to always compete at an intense pace. The next market, the crucial confirmations from Koulibaly and Mertens, to hold back certain essential players, the incoming shots, such as Ostigard and Deulofeu: these are the elements that could lead Napoli to the conquest of the Scudetto. Napoli, therefore, will have to have a complete squad to reach important goals both in the league and in Europe “.
