Aldo Spinelli is stepping down as Livorno president after seeing the club win promotion to Serie A.
â€śIf my son will accept the offer to take my place, I believe that this will be my last game as Livorno President,â€ť Spinelli told Sky Italia.
â€śFootball is cruel and for this reason I would like to leave the presidency to my son.
â€śThis has been too tough a year for me, what with a massacre of a playoff run. I hope my son accepts,â€ť he added.
His last act as President will be to keep Alessandro Diamanti and Francesco Tavano at the club next season.
â€śBoth will be the points of departure for the new Livorno. We deserved to get back into Serie A thanks to Gennaro Ruotolo, but also to his predecessor Leonardo Acori and our wonderful fans,â€ť Spinelli concluded.
