ACF Fiorentina can confirm that Beppe Iachini will stay on as Fiorentina coach for the 2020/21 season.

“Beppe Iachini came in at a very difficult time for the team and has managed – despite all the issues that this incredible year has entailed – to bring the club together and move us up the table,” said Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso.

“As such, I believe that the coach deserves a chance to be kept on and be able to work with the team from the start of the season. Over the past few months, I’ve been impressed by his professionalism, hard work and ability and I think it is right that we recognise the good work he and his staff have done.

“We’ll be right beside him next season and I want to wish him the best of luck for the new campaign. Right now, though, we need to focus on the last game of the season and try to improve our league position further.”

Beppe Iachini also shared his reaction to the news.

“I’m absolutely delighted,” he began. “Fiorentina is special to me – the club has always been in my heart. I want to thank the whole club, starting with Rocco Commisso, as well as Joe Barone and Daniele Prade, for the amazing support they’ve shown me and for the faith they’re placing in me in light of the good work we’ve done together.

“I also want to thank this fantastic group of players for the willingness and professionalism they’ve shown to me and the entire coaching staff over the past few months. My hope is that – through hard work – we can give ourselves and the fans something to celebrate.”
