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.
