Then there is Franco Osola, the great figure who keeps the memory of Grand Torino alive. I also see Zacharelli here. I have a background about him. I took the bull because at some point I was called by the lawyer Alaste Trombetta, a friend of my brother-in-law. He told me to come to Turin because Ciamparino wanted to meet me. The mayor learned that my mother is from del Toro. He asked me to embark on this adventure. But I knew nothing but that he was a very difficult scientist. That’s why I called Zacarelli and asked him to meet me. We met one afternoon at a bar. I asked him to help me but he was really tired of the experience he had, that promotion he got as a coach which he saw was fading away. And he told me he didn’t feel like it. But we have to go back to this bar together for coffee. Who knows what hasn’t happened before there will be in the future… I am glad to be here, it is a special occasion to remember our children and it is nice to have such a strong memory. the Bull? We have become a fierce team. At a certain point, after the matches with Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Sassuolo, we hoped we could appear higher.
