The words / The words of the Turin patron in an interview granted to La Stampa: “Mazzarri? He was wrong to take Chiellini as an example “
Urbano Cairo speaks in the round and does it to the microphones of La Stampa. The Turin patron spoke of the transfer market and more, removing Andrea Belotti from the transfer market: “We keep Belotti, it is not in question. However, I do not intend to fall back into the mistake made a year ago. What mistake? That idea, perhaps a little romantic, of keeping everyone. Never keep a player unwillingly“. The reference is to the many appetite grenade players on the market, including Armando Izzo: “Izzo has many requests – revealed Cairo -. To be honest, several of our players are in demand: if someone leaves, we will know how to replace them”.
The grenades meanwhile are among the most active teams on the market and after the signings of Ricardo Rodriguez, Karol Linetty and Mergim Vojvoda, the next target is the director: “We are working on the purchase in a play in front of the defense – Cairo added -. What will be the seasonal goal? It is early to talk about it: certainly not salvation. Let’s put Giampaolo in a position to work at his best, then we’ll see“. Then another denial regarding the sale of the club: “Ours is an economically sound company that has an important appeal, but it is not my intention to sell the majority shares. Least of all when you are returning from such a difficult season. I was and will remain president of Toro“. Finally also a mention of the former coach Walter Mazzarri, with Cairo revealing an interesting background: “We broke up with Mazzarri as good friends, he is a serious and valid professional, even if indicating Chiellini as an example for competitive fury was not a splendid idea. And I say this as a grenade fan. Longo, on the other hand, achieved the minimum objective: salvation. He did well, he’s a great motivator, but we’ve decided to move on”.
