Corvino: 'Nervous wreck over Toni'

Former Fiorentina director of sport Pantaleo Corvino recalls being "a nervous wreck," after paying €10m for Luca Toni in 2005 and forcing Dani Osvaldo to return a Ferrari.

Corvino was speaking to Tuttosport about his career as a director and recalled when he signed Toni from Palermo in the summer of 2005 for €10m.

“Only five times had I signed a player with a value over €10m. The biggest one I signed was [Giovanni] Simeone at €16m. With Toni it was the first time that I had spent €10m.

Maybe Carlo Ancelotti was always too nice to make his mark at Napoli, as Susy Campanale feels his style of ‘soft power’ no longer works.

Carlo Ancelotti is the gentleman of football management, the cuddly figure nobody can hate and everyone would like to share a glass of wine with – and not just because you know he has the best choice of vino on the planet. He was the master of ‘soft power,’ the ability to navigate strong personalities and seemingly appease them while at the same time making his own decisions. However, in recent years, Carletto appears to have lost the power part and just gone soft.

Ribery: 'I see Chiesa out wide'

Federico Chiesa has been Franck Ribery’s Fiorentina strike partner this season, but the veteran admits he sees the Italian “more as a winger”.

Ribery has just served a three-match ban for pushing an official during Fiorentina’s 2-1 defeat to Lazio last month, and he admits "the tension prevailed my experience" in another apology.

“I should’ve avoided that reaction. I apologised but it wasn’t enough,” he told Corriere dello Sport.

Perisic fell out of favour at Inter over the summer and subsequently joined Bayern, who can keep him permanently for €25m and whose CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has also hinted at a longer spell for the winger.

"I too think that's possible," he told the German giants' official website.
