Fiorentina appoint Sousa as coach

Sousa terminated his contract by mutual consent with Swiss side FC Basel, and will complete the move to Florence on Monday, where terms of his contract will be finalised.

???ACF Fiorentina is delighted to announce that an agreement has today been reached with Mr Paulo Sousa for him to become the new first-team Coach of the Viola,??? a club statement read.

???Mr. Sousa will be in Florence tomorrow to complete the formalities. A news conference will be held at the Stadio Artemio Franchi tomorrow, Monday 22 June.???

Fiorentina have been searching for a replacement for outgoing coach Vincenzo Montella, after he was somewhat surprisingly sacked after delaying signing a new deal.
