Agent Fali Ramadani has formally denied reports he had a meeting with Maurizio Sarri and Fiorentina directors.
The Corriere Fiorentino newspaper claimed that Sarri met with Viola directors in Castelfranco Piandisco, a village near to Florence.

“There were no meetings between Sarri and Fiorentina, please write that. Thank you,” was the message sent by Sarri’s agent, Fali Ramadani, to Sky Sport Italia.
