Italian Serie A side Fiorentina arrived in Malta early on Sunday morning to conduct a training camp as they take advantage of the winter break to step up their preparations for the second part of the season.
Led by coach Stefano Pioli, Fiorentina came to Malta with their full squad, including their latest signing – Colombian forward Luis Muriel who joined the club on loan from Sevilla.
