Hellas Verona president Maurizio Setti is delighted with their swoop for Luca Toni.

The former Fiorentina striker has penned a one-year deal with the Serie A new-boys.

"We are very happy with the transfer operation that brought Toni here to us," Setti told Radio Sportiva.

"Luca is a guarantee, not a gamble. We chose him for the hunger he still has, his experience and determination.

"He will not just be a man with charisma in the locker room, as his qualities as a player are beyond dispute."
