Prandelli thinks about the return of ‘Batigol’ for his Fiorentina


331 games, 203 goals, a promotion in 1994, a Cup in 96 and a Super Cup in 96/97. These are the results of Gabriel Omar Batistuta with Fiorentina which earned him a golden letter in the history of the viola. He has been at Artemio Franchi since he arrived from Boca Juniors in 1991 until 2000 when he headed to Rome. Now, Prandelli has reopened the doors of Italy at Punta de Reconquista.

In his presentation, the new coach of the La Toscana team assured that he will evaluate the arrival of the Argentine to be part of his staff helping his strikers. “I’ll talk to him later. For me he can be an added value and it would be nice to have him as a collaborator to train our forwards,” he said. without setting a date on when that collaboration might begin, which, he assured, “At this moment it is not possible.”

The future could again be a viola for “Batigol”. Prandelli assured that “it is an opportunity they are considering”. Everything will also depend on whether Orzinuovi’s manager continues to lead the squad or not.

Currently the club turned to an old man known as Cesare (from 05/06 to 09/10) with whom they lived better times, with consecutive European rankings. The goal is now more humble: to achieve stability. Fiorentina are in 12th place in football with eight points in the standings, three behind Genoa, which marks the decline with five. The Viola have won two, drew two others and lost the remaining three and have a negative goal balance (10 scored for 12 conceded). Numbers that, in a more or less recent future, Batistuta will have to work to change.
