Fiorentina missed with Jovic and Biraghi from the eleven meters

Daniel Niccolini, Vincenzo Italiano’s assistant coach at Fiorentina, spoke to Dazn’s microphones about the penalty hierarchy after the home win against Hellas Verona.

“As the coach says, he shoots them who feels like it. This year we said that if Gonzalez plays, he will shoot them. However Biraghi has already kicked them even when Vlahovic was there, he is one of the penalty takers. He felt it. If you don’t shoot, you don’t miss,” explained the deputy of the former Spezia coach.

Then the purple staff member dwelt precisely on Jovic, who was on the bench for the entire match against Cioffi’s men: “In Istanbul he took a knock, he was not 100 percent, we asked him how he was and since he was not feeling it we put Cabral on. Did he not warm up? I didn’t pay attention to it, I was focused on the match.”
