And then here is Franco Ossola, a great character who keeps the memory of the Grande Torino alive. I also see Zaccarelli here. I have a background regarding him. I took the Bull because at a certain point he called me the lawyer from Asti Trombetta, a friend of my brother-in-law. He told me to come to Turin because Chiamparino wanted to meet me. The mayor knew my mother was from del Toro. He asked me to embark on this adventure. But I didn’t know anything except that it was a very difficult world. This is why I called Zaccarelli and asked him to meet me. We met one afternoon in a bar. I asked him to help me but he was really tired from the experience he had, that promotion he had obtained as a coach that he saw vanish. And he told me he didn’t feel like it. But we have to go back to that bar together to have coffee. Who knows what hasn’t happened before will be there in the future… I’m happy to be here, it’s a special occasion to remember our kids and it’s nice that there is such an intense memory. The bull? We have become an aggressive team. At a certain point, after the matches with Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Sassuolo, we hoped to be able to look even higher. But then we lost incredible points with teams that never won! Too bad, but then we recovered well. We are optimistic and confident for the future“.
