Fiorentina chief Corvino: Gilardino will match Toni success

Fiorentina sports chief Pantaleo Corvino is delighted with their summer capture of former AC Milan striker Alberto Gilardino.

"I had struggled to wrestle Luca Toni away from Palermo," said Corvino. "But for Gila, everything was smooth. AC Milan wanted to sell him, the player wanted to come to Florence and we wanted to buy him.

"He'll score many goals, just like Toni. He has already rediscovered his best form."
