Still apart from Winks, rehabilitation for De Luca.
Ore 20 – The board members leave. Vice President Romei speaks: “No doubts about Giampaolo’s confirmation. We are united, even if we didn’t think we had two points after seven days. We also have to compare ourselves with the coach and we will do it in the next few days. Then we will also talk to the team, but we will have to wait for the return of the team. All with the utmost serenity, we are convinced that we have set up a good group and they all deserve trust. The club? There are no immediate problems, the catastrophism is not good for Sampdoria, the situation is as complicated as for other clubs. has created an imbalance in the accounts of all the clubs. There are problems but we try to solve them. We thought that our time horizon would end before the start of the championship, it was not so, we know that there are interested parties but we only collaborate to the sale that does not depend on us. But I hear about calls for transparency, without taking into account that the sales of companies are not made by putting posters, potential buyers want confidentiality. Al Thani’s letter? We haven’t seen it, it depends on Vidal and the Lazard bank. Since we have been in office, we have always hoped that the sale will take place as soon as possible. Why hasn’t it happened yet? Ours was a prediction, there was talk of acceleration but we don’t know why it didn’t materialize. We have invested in the market from a conservative perspective to safeguard the financial aspect. When the club is sold, we will resign. Neither Lanna nor I have seen the letter in question, but so be it, we are not putting any obstacles in the way. Maximum transparency and maximum help, while we think about everyday life, to pay salaries. Are you confident that Samp will be sold by the end of the year? Sampdoria is an important club, an excellent opportunity for national and international investors, who did due diligence did not object to the accounts, which are in order. Due diligence costs money, so it means that whoever does it is interested. Those who want it know the path and the rules of engagement: if they are respected and the offer is adequate, the company can be sold. In case of non-transfer? Our goal is to move forward and finish the championship. We expire on April 30, 2023, when the deadline for the approval of the 2022 financial statements will also expire “.
President Marco Lanna also speaks to Primocanale: “Trust in time to Giampaolo? No, first we will discuss with him but timed confirmations do not help. We try to get out of it all together, when things go wrong everyone’s faults, club, players, coach, who always pays more than all. Let’s square and try to get out of it. Does Giampaolo’s confirmation also depend on a dialogue with the most representative players? No, absolutely not “.
