Fiorentina-Juventus, the most important challenge in Florence. It took Joe Barone, the right hand of Commisso, very little to understand why. This matchup will also be a duel between two exceptional number 7s: Ribery and Cristiano Ronaldo. On the duel between these two champions, Barone expressed his opinion with Tuttosport.
"For what they've won in their careers and what they represent at the global level, there's nothing better in Serie A. I will say more, a duel like this you don't find in any European league. We should be proud of this.
"It's not true that Ribery's acquisition was just for the media. If the objective was only this, we would have signed other famous players. Franck was at the top of the list of our desired players because he still has a lot to give, for class, experience and a winning mentality. To grow a project, you need players like this. I'll explain to you who Ribery is: after we lost to Genoa, he remained until late at night training at our sporting center and calming his rage."
