Beppe Iachini claims that “no-one knows Fiorentina was among the most affected by a coronavirus since they beat Lecce 3-1 last night.”
After the restart, Fiorentina had won just one of their six games but they were surgical at Lecce, scoring all three goals in the first half.
Patrick Cutrone, German Pezzella, Dusan Vlahovic, and even Iachini were among those in Viola who positively checked COVID-19 before the restart (via Football Italia).
The coach said after victory for his side: “We practiced the right way for this game. Sadly, no one knows that we were among the coronavirus most affected. We had a handful of players in bed and not at home. It’s natural therefore that we may have suffered more than the others. We created a lot in six games and hit the woodwork five times. They could have earned us the extra points which this team deserves to have.”
