Fiorentina president Commisso: I treated Chiesa as a son, but he...

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso admits he was disappointed by Federico Chiesa's decision to leave for Juventus.

Commisso insists Chiesa pushed for the move.

He said, “I treated him like a son, whereas he did not do the right thing towards me, my family or those who work at this club.

"He's a kid, so it's better not to discuss this anymore, even if in America we say: If you go, try not to burn your bridges.

“They forced us into a one buyer and one seller situation. He didn't want to go to England, and in Italy he only wanted Juve, who were well aware of the situation. I had to ultimately give him what he wanted as a right business decision."
