Patrick Cutrone’s new life at Fiorentina got off to a flyer on Wednesday, as the striker scored just 11 minutes into his debut as the Viola defeated Atalanta 2-1 in the Coppa Italia round-of-16.

The Italy international moved from Milan to Wolves for £15.3m over the summer, but finds himself in Florence less than six months later as he’s joined on an initial 18-month loan with an obligation to buy for the same £15.3m price tag.

After the match, Cutrone made a surprising claim over why he decided to bolt from the Premier League.

“Wolverhampton didn’t trust me anymore and therefore I immediately said yes to Fiorentina,” the striker said, who scored just three times in 24 appearances for the club.

“I am delighted to have made this choice. I want to do well here.

“The best answers are given on the pitch. I have to thank Milan and Wolverhampton.

“They gave me confidence and these things happen in football. However, I have to thank them, because I grow every day.

“At Wolves, it was a great experience, I learned many things, in training I learned a lot. It was a new culture, I grew as a man and as a player.”

Cutrone also added that his main goal was to impress enough to earn himself a place on the Italy squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament.
