Claudio Sabatini talks again on Kobe Bryant and Manu Ginobili
Il patron della Virtus spiega al Resto del Carlino il suo progetto
Claudio Sabatini, owner of Virtus Bologna, talked again to Il Resto del Carlino, on Kobe Bryant and Manu Ginobili.
"I can risk by my own the 50% of the total amount of money needed. For the other half, I need the help of private companies, professional associations and the municipality. We have three opportunities: the arrival of Kobe Bryant, the return of Manu Ginobili and the organization of FIBA World Championship Under 19 in 2013. If I don't have the help to cover the other 50% of the cost I am not going forward to negotiate with Kobe Bryant" said Sabatini.
As reported by Bolognabasket.it, the first contact between Virtus Bologna and Kobe Bryant came via Facebook through Lauro Bon, a former Virtus player. Bon wrote on Kobe Bryant's wall on Facebook.
