Barák is not important for Fiorentina at the moment. In the fall, he got a little space in the Italian league – 9 games, a total of 227 minutes. He appeared in the starting line-up three times in the Conference League. The management of the Violets bid with Napoli for the amount and form of the transfer for so long that the reigning Italian champion said enough.
Spending half a million euros (12.5 million crowns) on loan plus 6 million euros (150 million crowns) for a summer buyout seemed logically too much for a player with little game experience. If coach Italiano has neglected Barák so far, he will hardly make the 29-year-old midfielder a key player during the spring. Fiorentina will most likely have a substitute in Barák.
Plus angry. Lose the opportunity to play for the famous club, which in the past season became the Italian champion for the first time since the legendary Maradona, instead of continuing to polish the bench in Fiorentina? No, no footballer would be thrilled with such a scenario. Doubly ambitious Barák.
Understandably, he wanted a change of jersey also due to the summer EURO. Former coach Jaroslav Šilhavý kicked him out of the national team due to alleged non-compliance with the rules, all players have the same chance for new coach Ivan Hašek. But the first meeting in Hašek’s era will be at the end of March, after which the team will meet before the tournament. Fiorentina’s move gave Barák very bad cards towards the EURO…
