Giancarlo Antognoni has spoken about the future of Federico Chiesa. The Fiorentina club manager stated at an event organized by the 'Brunelleschi Rotary Club' in Florence: "We hope that Federico Chiesa can stay here with us for as long as possible, his father manages him wisely and may want it keep in Florence. Federico is a good boy, advised by his parents, he does not have an attorney and this is already important because he has a supporting family behind him.”
On recent diving claims - "It bothers him to be accused of this, he is a guy who goes strong and so sometimes it may seem as if he falls voluntarily. But when you are going at a fairly high speed, a slight touch can cause you to go down. Gasperini was wrong about him, a manager or a coach absolutely cannot afford to judge the work of a professional like Federico Chiesa.”
