Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle admits he's excited about their season prospects.
Della Valle is confident of a top four finish - at the very least.
“With the team we’ve got right now, I cannot lie to the fans. I think we can dream of the Champions League along with five or six other clubs,” he said.
“I hadn’t said that for years, but now I feel ready to say it. The other word can only be said after a few months of the season,” he added, referring to the Scudetto.
“There’s no point in hiding, as it’s right to dream and sometimes dreams do come true. We have the right mix of youth, experience and world class players, meaning this team can continue to grow.
“If last year I’d said Fiorentina would have Mario Gomez playing alongside Giuseppe Rossi, people would’ve called me mad... I am satisfied that Florence has become a turning point for many champions."
