President Cairo made statements on the sidelines of the Cairo Mom and Dad Memorial, staged at Quattordio
After the semifinal between Turin and Milan Primavera, president Cairo took stock of current events, the market and also the quarrel between the sporting director Vagnati and the coach, Ivan Juric: “When you have emotions elevated to power and people like our coach and our sports director who want to do well, are determined and focused, it can happen”, the president explained. “Now it is important to do well for the team. I already said it during a meeting at the Festival dello Sport, we intend to invest and make the best possible team for our possibilities, but football must be sustainable from an economic point of view. I believe it is important to do the best possible compatibly with economic constraints, but as it happens to companiescompanies have costs and revenues and must make ends meet otherwise debts grow and companies fail ”.
Cairo: “The pandemic has affected everything”
More on this topic: “I have healed many companies bought by third parties, from La7 which lost 100 million to RCS which lost 260, we have canceled the debts and we have made them gain. Torino had a moment, from 2013 to 2018 in which it combined good budgets with good results, then a few steps longer than the leg I took, because I wanted to make a Toro as strong as possible … and then everything was linked to the pandemic. Two seasons without an audience, with sponsors giving less, but with the market becoming less favorable as market values drop. All this together has led to poor economic situations which were then combined with less good sporting results, not last year but in the previous two. Of the ten years it is the one in which we have risked something. I don’t wear medals, but we started from a failure, in the ten years before the Bull had been in Serie B six times ”.
Cairo on Juric
“Today my regret is having a coach like Juric that I would like to please but for reasons related to a previous history I have not yet been able to give him what I wanted. This is a regret I have but we are working to make things happen. Football is strange, it seems to have closed for a player, you exchange documents but then… ”.
Cairo on the market
Still on the market: “I’m going to make a good team, I would have wanted to do it sooner but the times have lengthened but we will do the things we have to do”, explained the president Cairo after the semifinal between Turin and Milan of the Memorial Mamma and Papa Cairo. About purchases: “How many will we do? We know what it takes, Pellegri is a purchase, we have redeemed him, Radonjic, Bayeye who is a young man who has potential, Lazaro has arrived, who is a player that Inter paid 22 million and then surely a central defense is missing, a midfielder and there we have something that is being born, and then at least one player is missing from the trocar, having Radonjic, Verdi and Seck there. If there are opportunities we will see, last year on the last day we did quality things. I know that things are not done on the last day, the coach is right, he is totally right, but the theme is that the market is strange, unfortunately it is very complicated but we are here to do well and we will do well, we will make the team “.
On Ilkhan: “I tell things when they are done, signed and so on. A quality player but until it’s done let’s not say it, we saw a few days ago (Miranchuk, ed) how it went “.
