As Fiorentina prepare to face Twente in the Conference League, a look back at our last time in Europe
It’s awfully hard to be excited when a hedge fund comes out as the big winner and an actual football team the loser.
What’s that? Fiorentina is poised to slide into the Europa League playoffs? Alright, alright, alright.
There’s a sliver of a chance that Milan’s financial indiscretions could see the Viola back into Europe, but we don’t think it’s likely.
