Fuming Fiorentina owner Commisso puts club up for sale: You have ten days!

Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso has offered the club to the Florence public.

Commisso has declared today he is prepared to sell Fiorentina - and given a ten day deadline.

He declared: "I spent 170 million to buy it. Then 80 million to restore it, then another 85 million euros for the sports centre. I want to go back to America and sell Fiorentina to the Florentines, to those who have money ... But you have to do as you did.

"From me: of these 335 million euros you have to make a deposit of 35 million euros within ten days and then go ahead. I give you an opportunity, money in exchange for guarantees. You say that there will be a Florentine willing to buy it? This offer ends within ten days ... I export the Fiorentina brand to the USA, I promote it, and here in Florence there are only attacks on me. Why?"
