Lorenzo De Silvestri Can Be As Good As Inter’s Maicon – Fiorentina Sporting Director


The transfer guru is excited about the right-back’s prospects.

Pantaleo Corvino, Fiorentina’s sporting director, has lauded Lorenzo De Silvestri, whom the Viola are expected to sign from Lazio in the coming hours. Corvino is very much looking forward to seeing the 21-year-old in action.

“We see a potential Maicon in him,” the director toldRadio Radio, while also admitting that he is an admirer of De Silvestri’s Lazio team-mate Cristian Ledesma.

“I would like to have him at Fiorentina. I brought him to Italy [with Lecce], but our choice has fallen on [Cristiano] Zanetti.

“I’m sure that Zanetti will give us what [Felipe] Melo gave us,” Corvino added.

Zanetti will be in action for Fiorentina tonight as the Gigliati face Sporting CP in the second leg of their Champions League play-off tie. The first leg finished 2-2, leaving the Tuscan side with every chance of progressing to the group stages.
