And the winner is…
July 12th, 2012 – Naples
Adonis Pimp, a 25 yr old from Naples, has won the chance to lead Napoli. As the media scoffed and club officials snickered, Adonis marched up and shook De Laurentiis hand.
“Are you kidding me,"
shouted a reporter, “Hell I could do better than this kid”
After the jeers subsided, De Laurentiis introduced his new manager. Aurelio De Laurentiis spoke briefly and emphasized that Mazzarri’s name is done and that a fresh new, ambitious face was to now lead.
“He couldn’t even dress himself for a presser”
, shouted a reporter alluding to the uncombed hair and boyish looking clothing the young lad wore.
De Laurentiis would drop one reassuring bombshell; not only will over a dozen coaches, physios and staff in general be let go, Pantaleo Corvino would replace Riccardo Bigon as the Director of Football and assist Adonis.
The boy then took the microphone and spoke. Not a hint of nervousness could be found as he almost seemed oddly medicated for the big day.
The questions would come fast and furious:
“Do you know anything about the club?”
“Have you ever played before?”
even… “Do you have a curfew?”
and “Did you ask your parents first?”
Calmy the boy would answer each one and he assured everyone that as a lifetime supporter of Napoli, he felt as if this was his destiny. Adonis mentioned meeting with Corvino, and that he felt they would work well together.
Still unable to keep a straight face, many in the press corps would continue the jeers. As the presser would finish, De Laurentiis would rise and reassure everyone that this was his wish for the club and after meeting with Adonis and Corvino, he felt assured over the future of the club.
