"Prandelli? We have done nothing to take him away from Fiorentina. In this period there is a lot of transfer talk because it is part of the media's game, but we are happy with our Coach and the Viola are with theirs.
"We will carry on with our respective tacticians next season as well."
Having said that, Branca lavished praise upon Prandelli's work with Fiorentina over the past few years.
"The Fiorentina project he has been leading for some time is an important one and the team is fast approaching the status of the giants.
"This group would deserve fourth place, but the final seven rounds will be extremely uncertain."
