Mirri: “Palermo will not be like Barbera or Zamparini. A solid foundation thanks to the city”

Long interview with Dario MirriPresident of Palermo, on columns Corriere dello Sport outlining goals for the future, starting with synergy with Manchester City: “Palermo is a great opportunity, I talked about it and City Group is the best football producer in the world. Ferran Soriano, CEO, is from the Mediterranean and knows Palermo better than many Palermitans. We are the fifth Italian city, a landmark for at least half of the region, the western part of Sicily and the untold potential is huge. From the academy we want to create to the internationalization of the team and brand. We explained it and the city understood. The ambition or the dream, if you will, is to return to Serie A and stay there, of course, because there is nothing worse than standing up and then stepping back. No lifting commands, like in my uncle Renzo Barber’s time in the seventies. We also don’t want to be a wonderful Zamparini company, based on the intuition of the owner and the right technical solutions, but without foundation. A great dream without a solid foundation becomes a nightmare. Regardless of Dybala, Pastore, Cavani, who come and go, stable supports are needed. – continues Mirri – Everyone is talking about the industrial plan, I know. however, the City has shown that results are stable over time. In less than twenty years, he told a success story. We hope that this will happen to all the teams in the group and this should certainly apply to Palermo. Manchester City in 1999 was like Palermo. Look at it now.”
