It is with deep regret that the consultancy position with Palermo Fc has been breeched and now looks as it will become a legal concern.
Despite our best efforts to act upon facts and figures given to us, pre acquisition, despite a detailed report of reasonable points to action, it is clear, there was a different agenda to the remit and never acted upon. As a consultant, it’s important for those related to the club, we offer clarity of fact not headlines. However, It is with regret we make a statement as there is so much potential in the club with outstanding fans all over the world.
To be clear, we worked for many hours, talking with clubs and managers and highlighted new players to come in, this action was blocked, top premier league players and strikers were lined up. The need for more goals were highlighted in my meeting with the coach. These players were blocked in the last 2 days of the transfer window. Players which could have helped Palermo reach promotion to Serie A’. I wish to state i never had a problem with Mr Foschi or anyone at the club at any stage, despite difficulties in language. I found the coach, his staff very welcoming and good people who just want to work together as a team. In times like this, the coach, his staff, the players and the fans suffer without clarity of information and sometimes the truth, I wish to be clear, we have done everything we can to help the club move on, unfortunately some of the details given to myself along this process, could be seen nothing short of a ‘scandal’ in my opinion. I am sure in the near future and after legal advice, no confidentiality NDA, if the need is required to declare more information on this experience to protect our due diligence projects we shall do so. Let it be stated, we hope this matter can be resolved amicably.
We act in the interest of our clients and investors, not the sellers, in this situation. I do wish the fans of Palermo, coach and players much success in this difficult stage.
