Freshman Fiorentina Nikola kalinić shared thoughts from the transition from the Dnieper.
“This is a big step in my career. As soon as I heard that Fiorentina is interested in me, I began to put pressure on officials of the Dnieper, so they let me go.
I wanted to play in Italy, and glad to be here now. Provided that will play well in Florence, I can make a call to the national team. For me this is very important.
Serie a is very different from the Ukrainian Premier League, so I will need some time to adapt. But I’m ready and not afraid of responsibility, I can replace the level striker Gomez.
My favorite strikers — Drogba and Ibrahimovic. I can’t tell whether I like the style of play on them, check the games for Fiorentina,” said Kalinich.
Earlier SPORTS bigmir)net reported that Dnipro striker Nikola kalinic has signed a contract with Fiorentina.
