Kokorin, on the fringes of the roster, wants to stay in purple: “He wants to impress”

Aleksandr Kokorin wants to stay at Fiorentina at all costs. Despite a year on the margins of the roster, the Russian striker wants to stay in Florence to play his cards: “Sasha accepted the challenge of Florence 16 months ago with great enthusiasm and is convinced that he wants to carry it on. Frankly, I don’t know some problem has prevented him from playing with continuity but what I can say is all this has in no way changed his relationship with the club and the city,” the words of the player’s agent to FirenzeViola.

“He hopes to play with more continuity next year and be useful to the Viola. He only thinks about scoring goals and nothing else. No one from the club has contacted me to propose termination of the contract. And the player has never talked to me about it either, so I don’t think it is a possibility at the moment,” Timofey Berdyshev concluded. Kokorin has a contract until 2024.
