De Laurentiis and Cardinale when managers don’t help presidents

Count Pontello called and came to the office with Ranieri and Luca to offer the presidency of Fiorentina.
If I agreed, I would be an arrogant fool.
I was an employee and imagine myself attending a League meeting between Berlusconi and Mantovani. Even if the idea was right, you had to say one thing or the other to pass. Moreover, if they wanted to talk to the Count, they did not like an intermediary.
I refused.
Firstly, because the Pontello name was a guarantee and had to remain, then I would have caused damage to the club, the fans, the city and myself. Even though we sold Massaro and Galli to Milan and Passarella to Inter, the team was ready to fight for the Scudetto and the UEFA Cup with the arrival of Van Basten, Kieft, Diaz, Di Chiara and Falcao. Of course, for only one reason: Count Pontello, a man of power.
