Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso: “My advice to Friedkin? Don’t make promises you can’t keep”.


Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso appeared this afternoon on Radio Bruno Toscana and gave some advice to soon-to-be Roma owner Dan Friedkin, who agreed to a deal to purchase the club this week.

“I don’t know Friedkin personally, but I know JP Morgan, the advisor he used — in 2010/11 I was supposed join Thomas DiBenedetto in purchasing Roma but then I gave up,” he said.

“Pallotta arrived soon thereafter. My parents taught me so many things including learning from the mistakes of others. Pallotta didn’t even know how to speak Italian because he was a third generation Italian-American. Me on the other hand, I speak Italian. I am Italian”.

“My advice to Friedkin is to not make promises you can’t keep. For instance, I told Pallotta that he should win first before promising the supporters that the club would be a top-five club in the world. He needed to win something first before saying that”.

“I never make promises I can’t keep,” Commisso concluded.
