Friday Poll: Who would you take as coach if the Della Valles leave?

New ownership could well mean a new mister.

As the rumors of Fiorentina’s impending sale to Rocco Commisso or a Qatari sheikh or an American conglomerate or Eduardo Eurnekian or a GoFundMe created by members of this site, it’s easy to let the quotidian business of the club fall away unnoticed. However, new ownership would probably mean significant organizational shakeups, and that could begin with the coach.

Vincenzo Montella, after all, hasn’t exactly impressed through his second spell in Florence, having gone winless in his 8 matches at the helm. While there are obviously mitigating factors—a squad rightfully grouchy about the treatment of popular predecessor Stefano Pioli, a dearth of players who fit the passing style Vinnie prefers, the difficulty of implementing a new system partway through the season—it’s safe to wonder if a new owner would relieve the Aeroplanino of his duties to really start fresh.


If that GoFundMe works out, then, which of these at least somewhat realistic options would you pick as the new manager?
