Due to alleged differences over the transfer market, Gennaro Gattuso, who was hired as Fiorentina’s new head coach only 23 days ago, has amicably agreed to quit the club.

According to Italian media, Gattuso, who was represented by his agent Jorge Mendes, was eager for Fiorentina to get Portugal midfielder Sergio Oliveira from Porto, but Fiorentina management was apprehensive over a transfer cost of 20 million euros ($24 million).

Gattuso also wanted Fiorentina to consider the signing of other players such as Valencia winger Gonçalo Guedes and Jesus Corona.

After Cesare Prandelli quit in March, Fiorentina had been without a head coach until Guiseppe Iachini was hired till the conclusion of the season.

They thought they’d found a replacement in Gattuso who signed two weeks after leaving Napoli but disagreements caused them to split ways.

Fiorentina is on the hunt for their fifth coach in two years, under US owner Rocco Commisso.
