Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso has brought Daniele Prade back as new sports director.
Prade returns from Udinese to kickstart the Commisso era.
“Daniele is a top level professional with proved experience of success in Italian football," Commisso told the official club website.
“He knows Florence very well and achieved great results in his previous seasons with the club. I am sure that once again he'll do his best for Fiorentina and for Florence."
Prade also said, “It is a great honour for me to return to Fiorentina, because I had wonderful years with the Viola, but now is the moment to roll our sleeves up and start again.
“I thank the new club owners, in particular President Commisso, for thinking of me. I will do everything possible to repay their faith."
