Baggio: ‘Fiorentina are playing great football’


Italy and Fiorentina legend Roberto Baggio believes La Viola are playing some great football under coach Vincenzo Italiano. Baggio was speaking at the Trento Sports Festival about his former side, while also taking time to praise Inter star Lautaro Martinez, who he believes is an ‘extraordinary’ player.

“Fiorentina are playing great football and Italiano is a very good coach. Congratulations to them. Last year Napoli played wonderful football, the Scudetto was deserved.

“I hope that Luciano Spalletti will do able to guide the Azzurri. At the level of the Champions League, Italian football is coming back, but all in all we have never gone away even if at national level we did not manage to qualify for the World Cup. However, I think that whoever wins the European Championship should automatically qualify, the regulations should be revised.

“Off the pitch my life is very simple, I follow football on Youtube with highlights. A footballer I like a lot now is Lautaro Martinez. I already saw him at Racing when he was 18 years old. At the time he wasn’t called up and I remember him saying there was time to go anyway. He is the symbol of Inter as well as a total, extraordinary player.”
