Former Sporting Lisbon winger Matias Fernandez is excited about his move to Fiorentina.
Fernandez was unveiled yesterday by Viola officials.
â€śI am happy to be in Italy. Iâ€™ve played in prestigious leagues, but for me Serie A is the most important challenge of my career,â€ť said the 26-year-old.
â€śIâ€™ve always wanted to play in Italy. Fiorentina are among the biggest clubs and Iâ€™m proud to represent them. When I reached Spain I was only 20 years old, but now I think and hope itâ€™s the right time.
â€śI hope to continue the strong tradition of South Americans in Florence, made of such great names. I love to play the ball and to be in midfield, though I can also play behind the strikers.â€ť
