“M ** da bureaucracy. I spent 340 million for Fiorentina”

Thus begins the interview that the owner of the Fiorentina released to the Financial Times. The chat was held in November, during Commisso’s last stay in Florence, but was only published today in the online edition of the American newspaper.

As usual, the purple tycoon doesn’t tell them and his first victim is the Italian bureaucracy, defined “a m ** da“. The goal of the Italian-American president is to renew the now dilapidated Franchi, but the local authorities are hindering it. Commisso defines the stadium: “the most disgusting thing that has ever been invented” and does not understand how it can be considered a historical heritage.

However, investing does not mean throwing money away. In fact, Commisso declares that he is not one “stupid american” to be plucked, but which intends to make Fiorentina self-sufficient from an economic point of view, leading them to compete with the best Italian and European clubs.

In the chat, Rocco Commisso also gave his version of what happened with Gennaro Gattuso that from the day of his arrival he would ask the company to “buy some players for a certain price“, all belonging to the stable of his agent Jorge Mendes.

Finally, the journalist asks him for an opinion on the capital gains affair at Juventus and the Italian-American businessman, without mincing words, replies that: “In the US, shareholders would sue bastards, pardon the language”. Rocco Commisso closes bragging about the way he made his fortune: Andrea Agnelli, Steven Zhang e Paul Singer they got rich thanks to the money of others, he made himself.
