La Spezia – “We believe in handshakes. We believe in signed contracts. We believe in the words spoken. We believe in loyalty. On the wings of the enthusiasm of an exceptional salvation, we have tried to carry out our program. For those who should have exalted it, the Eagles jersey was obviously not a priority “. These are the words with which the president of La Spezia, the American Philip Platek, dismisses the coach Vincenzo Italiano, from this afternoon officially the new coach of Fiorentina.
The Ligurian company, after announcing with a meager press “to have concluded the employment relationship” with the Sicilian coach and his technical staff, released a note in which theThe president clarifies on the story and reassures the fans about the future. “I know very well that what has happened in the last few days really is difficult to accept – Platek says addressing the supporters -. We all understand very well how the past few days have not been easy. We believe that in sport, as in everyday life, clarity, respect and trust are essential and at the basis of any healthy relationship. In these last days we had to face an unthinkable and disrespectful situation for the club, for the city and for all the fans. “Sibylline phrases addressed to the new Viola coach.
“This situation could have been resolved more quickly, but we were determined to remain true to our principles. We cannot allow anyone to disrespect the history and sporting tradition of the fans and the city,” says Platek, who points out how “we will never be caught unprepared: we immediately set to work to find a new coach who wants to be part of this project with loyalty, clarity, respect and trust “.
Reconstructing the technical situation is now the imperative, and the first step will arrive tomorrow, with the announcement of the new director Riccardo Pecini. It will be he, together with the owners, to identify the new technician. Not an easy choice: the last attempts to get to Marco Giampaolo they do not seem to have borne good results, with the coach reluctant to the La Spezia adventure. Almost the same speech for Domenico Tedesco, Spartak Moscow coach, who would await a new call from the Bundesliga.
Another road leads to Giuseppe Iachini, who has already worked with Pecini, while the hypotheses Davide Nicola and Roberto Venturato are not excluded either. Meanwhile, Enel fans return to make themselves heard, who have affixed a banner to the perimeter nets of the Picco stadium with the words ‘In Spezia only real men’, an unequivocal message on what happened but also on the future of the Ligurian club.
