Joe Barone’s harsh response to Lucas Torreira

The Lucas Torreira issue continues to hold center stage at Fiorentina: the midfielder, through his social channels, shared strong messages towards the club and Joe Barone decided to respond to him.

“I ask please that this story ends. We have suffered personal attacks, both Rocco and his son but also me, my wife and my children. In the meantime, I thank Lucas for the season he had with Fiorentina, from me, the club and Commisso. Yesterday Pradè specified all the talk, our responsibility is then to make a technical choice, whether we like it or not. I saw this morning what Lucas wrote and I am sorry, city and fans do not deserve such a reaction,” said the purple executive during the press conference for the presentation of Mandragora.

The blue midfielder then spoke: “The will of the coach and the club weighed a lot, as did ambitions. I felt wanted from the first moment of the negotiation and when the call came I had no major doubts.”
