The sporting director has been the most popular scapegoat for the Viola’s recent struggles, but he’s far from the only issue at the club.
It’s easy to look at the team and see everything falling apart even when things are actually coming together.

The Viola have the best possible bounce-back spot against the cellar-dwellers, and if you’re a Fiorentina fan, that should make you very anxious indeed.
Despite another late defeat at the hands of the Nerazzurri, the Viola can leave the Coppa with their heads held high.
