FC Copenhagen could have been the approach of a player from a prominent fodboldfamilie in 2016.
In an interview with the new iphone ... says FCK-manager Stale Solbakken, the club was close to download Giovanni Simeone in may 2016.
But the attacker's father, the Atlético Madrid coach, Diego Simeone, said the supposedly no.
- Everything was in place in relation to the shift. So we had to fly to Milan and from there on in car hire to Bergamo to meet Giovanni and his agent for a last talk, says Solbakken.
- We were on the way to the airport when Johan (Long, technical director, red.) suddenly got a phone call from the (Diego, red.) Simeones secretary.
He said that Simeone was completely in kulkælderen after the Champions League final. And now he had vetoed his son's switch: "Mister Simeone has changed his mind", says I am the manager.
The then 20-year-old argentine played at that time in his home country.
He chose to go to Genoa instead of FCK. From here we went to Fiorentina, where he has played 65 matches and scored 20 goals.
