Despite our best efforts to act upon facts and figures given to us, pre acquisition, despite a detailed report of reasonable points to action, it is clear, there was a different agenda to the remit and never acted upon. As a consultant, it’s important for those related to the club, we offer clarity of fact not headlines. However, It is with regret we make a statement as there is so much potential in the club with outstanding fans all over the world.
To be clear, we worked for many hours, talking with clubs and managers and highlighted new players to come in, this action was blocked, top premier league players and strikers were lined up. The need for more goals were highlighted in my meeting with the coach. These players were blocked in the last 2 days of the transfer window. Players which could have helped Palermo reach promotion. I wish to state i never had a problem with Mr Foschi or anyone at the club at any stage, despite difficulties. I found the coach and his staff very welcoming and good people. In times like this, the coach and his staff, the players and the fans suffer without clarity of information and the truth, I wish to be clear, we have done everything we can to help the club move on, unfortunately some of the details given to myself along this process, could be seen nothing short of a ‘scandal’ in my opinion. I am sure in the near future and after legal advice, I am not under any NDA. I can declare more information to protect our due diligence projects should we need to.
We act in the interest of our clients and investors, not the sellers, in this situation. I do wish the fans of Palermo, coach and players much success in this difficult stage.
