The 18-year-old, who is the cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, posted a picture of himself with Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso after Sunday's game.

The Viola picked up their first point of the season after defeats to Napoli and Genoa, with the best chances testing Wojciech Szczesny.

I am very happy, as it's been three months since I played a full game and it went well. I am trying to find my form and it was a step forward," Ribery told Sky Sport Italia.

We tried everything to score a goal, but Juventus are a strong team and it was also very hot. We're working all together, we have a good team and hopefully will win the next match."

He added: The fans are marvellous, I came to Florence for a crowd like this, who pack out the stadium."

Sarri made his first competitive appearance on the touchline after recovering from pneumonia.

We didn't put in a good quality performance, it was a very complicated situation, as Fiorentina played well and we used up all our substitutions with injuries and had no more fresh legs to introduce," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

With all those variables, we did well in terms of character to get a point out of it. We lost possession too many times, which may also be a consequence of physical issues. Playing in mid-afternoon in Florence when it's realistically still summer is tough for everyone."

For the 0-0 draw with Fiorentina, Blaise Matuidi was again picked instead of summer signing Rabiot.

Sarri explained: Rabiot is a player of great quality, but he hasn't played a single competitive game in 2019. He arrived with such determination and sharpness, but when you haven't played for months, there's going to be a physical blowback from that. He is a very sensitive guy and so that physical reaction was something he also suffered with psychologically.

We had five players at the Copa America and eight on the treatment table, so we have half the squad at a more advanced fitness level than the rest. It was a difficult situation to deal with and we needed some time to get them all in to acceptable levels, but the good news is that we tend to finish games strong.

We're therefore lacking some sharpness, but the stamina remains."

Sarri missed the start of the season due to pneumonia.

It wasn't easy to sit out," said Sarri.

I thank the doctors who treated me. They made me understand that I had to take a small step back. But I remained calm because my technical staff were doing great.

It wasn't easy or gratifying to name my Champions League squad, but it was necessary.

I'm disappointed because two very important players won't be involved. These difficulties, however, show the great strength of our squad.

It's normal that when a player suffers because of a strong and radical decision, there's an emotional aspect to be taken into account.

We must give him the opportunity to get everything off his chest. I'm at the right age to understand his reaction.

Right now, I'm only thinking about the League. Our attentions must be focused on tomorrow."

Klopp insists the young attacker simply disagreed with the club's long-term view to ease him into the first-team set-up at the club.

He said: "Am I disappointed? I'm not sure. These things happen, we are all individuals and we all have different targets.

"We wanted to show him the perspective here but that is a message you deliver and nobody gets the message then you cannot change that.

"Obviously he had a completely different idea and especially about the timescale of how quick it has to be. We had to accept that and that is what we did. On the other side you have the club that is asking for him and that was the period that was not so nice.

"It's how it is. The club that wants the player is not coming in and offering 500m and we are saying 'No, we're fine with 10m'.

"It was the negotiations and that is always the period where people get a bit nervous but we can not say 'Oh you want him? Get him.'

"In these periods if we could all stop talking so much - all the people - that would help.

"It was a completely normal situation. If you want to buy a used car you can put 20,000 down and buy whatever car you want. I don't want to compare young players to a car but it was completely normal negotiations.

"Somebody wants something, somebody has it, and so you have to find a way. There was a lot of talking, we were not really involved to be honest, and now he's at Fiorentina. We wish him all the best."

Pedro arrived this week after being signed from Fluminense.

"It was a long negotiation and I want to thank everyone now that I am at a great club like Fiorentina," he said in a Press conference.

I am fit to play against Juventus this weekend and have recovered from a slight injury, so the choice is up to the Coach. The striker I try to base myself on is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as he has great quality and technique. The Number 9 at Fiorentina was worn by an idol like Gabriel Batistuta, so I'd love to follow in his footsteps.

When my agents told me that Fiorentina were interested, it immediately excited me, considering the tradition of the club. I've just arrived, but I feel ready and was given a warm welcome.

It's going to be amazing to play alongside Ribery, because his career speaks for him. It's like a dream come true, as I always used to choose him when playing videogames.

This Fiorentina was built to win and it'll be a pleasure for all of us. I am a forward who likes to move around a lot to create space for my teammates, too."

Boateng is now at the 11th club of his career having joined Fiorentina from Sassuolo this summer.

"I'll go back and say: I didn't treat football as a job," he told La Repubblica.

"I was an idiot. I had talent, but I trained the bare minimum, an hour on the field. I was the last to arrive and the first to leave. I'd be out with friends. I had money, I lived like a king. I'd never been to the gym. That changes your later career.

"I bought three cars in one day when I was at Tottenham: a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac. To the youngsters, I tell them: 'You cannot buy happiness'.

"I didn't play, I had family problems, I was out of the squad. I was looking for happiness in material things: a car makes you happy for a week. I bought three to be happy for three weeks."

Sabah says the North London club have been tracking Muriqi, with scouts watching on as the Fenerbahce star netted during Kosovo's 2-1 win over the Czech Republic last weekend.

Spurs face competition for the 25-year-old, with officials from Lazio, Fiorentina, and Napoli also in attendance.

Muriqi only arrived at Instanbul giants Fenerbahce this summer from Caykur Rizespor for 3.1 million.

However, he has already netted twice in the opening three Super Lig games of the season before notching another double during the international break.
