In an interview with Il Messaggero newspaper on December 1 (Hanoi time), Mr. Cobolli Gigli said: “When Andrea Agnelli became the club’s president, it was a positive thing. The first phase went smoothly with the support. with help from Director Beppe Marotta. Juventus revived and won 9 consecutive Serie A titles. But that all changed because of the Ronaldo recruitment campaign.”
“Agnelli was persuaded to sign Ronaldo because it would bring huge commercial revenue and help Juventus get closer to the chance to win the Champions League. However, Marotta disagreed with the idea. Later on. , the investment in Ronaldo proved to be too expensive, Meanwhile, Fabio Paratici, who promoted the signing of CR7, continued to have other investments in the stars, causing the team to lose revenue and expenditure balance. “, said the former president of Juventus.
Ronaldo played for Juventus for 3 seasons between 2018-2021. CR7 receives a salary of 30 million euros per season at the Turin club. That is not including the transfer fee of 100 million euros that Juventus must pay Real Madrid in the summer of 2018.
Gigli believes that the financial situation of the club has deteriorated year by year, as evidenced by the need to raise capital up to 700 million euros. The former Juventus president said that the team made a mistake when appointing Maurizio Sarri (who only led the club for only one 2019/20 season). At the same time, Juventus’ image was damaged when participating in the Super League project and involved in a scandal related to Luis Suarez’s Italian citizenship test.
Cobolli Gigli, 77 years old, is an Italian lawyer and former president of Juventus from 2006-2009. He ceded the presidency to Jean-Claude Blanc for a season 2009/2010 and after that, Agnelli officially took over at the club.
On November 29, the Juventus leadership duo including President Agnelli and Vice President Pavel Nedved simultaneously resigned. Gianluca Ferrero is the person appointed to the chair instead of Agnelli. Mr. Ferrero announced that he wanted to invite the legendary Alessandro Del Piero back to Juventus to hold the position of vice president.
