boss Cesare Prandelli has confirmed that he will not be able to use Aleksandr Kokorin in the match against Spezia

The Russian striker, who joined Fiorentina from Spartak Moscow in January, has played just one game for his side. However, Prandelli has insisted he will not play against Spezia.

He told a news conference: “When he arrived, we started with a specific preparation. I put him on the pitch for a few minutes against Inter to understand.

“He still isn’t in great shape and in that match he had a small problem that made him uncomfortable.

“Against Sampdoria I brought him on the bench to integrate him with the group and understand the football and the characteristics of his teammates.

“Tomorrow, he will be on the bench, but I don’t think I can use him. We are working to have him 100 per cent.”
