Gabriel Omar Batistuta, when he can come, is always welcome in Florence. It's his second home, where he played for 9 years, scored many goals and entered the hearts of the fans. He's returned tot he city as a "tourist" or a former player to collect various awards. In Florence he celebrated his 50th birthday with many fans in the Piazza della Signoria. He may return to Florence again, though, but this time as an executive.
Commisso has already called him to discuss an internal role with the club. It's an offer that Batigol is considering. "Yes, we spoke to each other. For the moment it's only been that, then it depends on what they'd want me to do. I live in Argentina, therefore I'd have to move. I will wait and see what to do. If they were to call me, I'd like to be useful. Otherwise we can stay as we are right now."
In any case, it's a true discussion that still needs to take off. In the meantime, enthusiasm has returned to Florence due to the new Italian-American owner: "The change in ownership has brought the right passion back to the piazza. I think that Commisso is one that can really do something for Fiorentina. The fans have already accepted him." The confirmation of Montella as manager is the first step, now bringing Bati back to the club may be the second.
