Burdisso to join Fiorentina staff

Former Boca Juniors director Nicolas Andre Burdisso is expected to join Fiorentina as their international scout.

According to Sportitalia, the deal is imminent and will be announced over the next few days.

Burdisso will work alongside current director of sport Daniele Pradè and specifically focus on finding players in South America.

The 40-year-old is very familiar with Serie A, having spent most of his playing career there with Inter, Roma, Genoa and Torino before retiring in 2018.

He returned to Argentina to take over as director of sport at Boca Juniors, leaving in January 2020.
