Mario Bolatti Confirms Fiorentina Stay

Argentinian won't be leaving the Viola…
Fiorentina midfielder Mario Bolatti has pledged his future to Fiorentina, dismissing rumours linking the Argentinian with a move away from the club.

“I came to a team that was already assembled and I have a lot of competition [for places] in the team,” Bolatti told ESPN Deportes.

“The important thing is that my relationship with the coach [Cesare Prandelli] is very good. I have dialogue [with him], talking is important at times like this."

Bolatti has struggled to find a regular place in the Viola first team since joining the club in the winter transfer window and following the appointment of Angel Cappa at River Plate, the 25-year-old has inevitably been linked with a move back to his homeland.

The Argentinian international’s career had completely stalled at FC Porto before Cappa brought him into his sensational Huracan side alongside the likes of Javier Pastore last year. It was a move that completely rejuvenated the midfielder's career and saw him break into the international setup.

"I have not had any direct communication with them," Bolatti continued. "I have read about River's interest, but I'm happy here at Fiorentina. I’ve only had three months here, it’s not a lot of time.”
