Viola next for Del Neri? Monday 26 April, 2004


Chievo boss Gigi Del Neri is being lined up to take over at Fiorentina if they are promoted to Serie A.

The Tuscan outfit are closing in on a return to top-flight football and sources suggest that Del Neri is wanted.

The Viola are currently being led by Emiliano Mondonico who replaced Alberto Cavasin earlier this year.

Although the former Toro boss is doing a fine job, Fiorentina chief Diego Delle Valle reportedly has his eyes elsewhere.

His first option was Walter Novellino but he recently extended his contract with Sampdoria until the summer of 2007.

That has put Del Neri in pole position to take over even if he is also being linked with the Juventus post.

Stories also suggest that Lecce’s Delio Rossi and former Palermo boss Silvio Baldini are contenders too.

Fiorentina move for Chievo coach Del Neri
tribalfootball.com - April 29, 2004

Fiorentina are considering dumping coach Emiliano Mondonico if they win promotion back to the Serie A this season.
Its reported that the Fiorentina board do not believe Mondonico can manage a Serie A team and handle all the pressures that come with it.

Instead, the Serie B outfit are seeking talks with Chievo Verona trainer Luigi del Neri.

Indeed, its been suggested a verbal agreement has already been struck, with Del Neri insisting Fiorentina make Giuseppe Sculli their first signing in the close-season.

Maybe we should rethink about this dude, he's under investigation for some reason.
