Winning start for Artur Boruc at Fiorentina


Artur Boruc helped Fiornetina to a 1-0 win over Chievo today in his Serie A debut.

A long term injury to Sebastian Frey has given the former Celt his chance and the Holy Goalie marked it with a clean sheet to help lift the violas into mid-table with twelve points from ten games.

Speculation linking Boruc with a January move back to Poland or West Ham can now be discounted with Frey unlikely to play again this season.

The Fiorentina fans are amongst the most passionate in Italy and it won’t take Boruc long to build up a rapport with the supporters at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Allesio Cerci scored the only goal of the match in the 81st minute with Boruc picking up a yellow card late on in the match for time wasting.

In Russia just 1,200 supporters turned up to see Ruban Kazan draw 0-0 with Spartak Moscow with Aiden McGeady rested for the match.
