Franck Ribery left Fiorentina at the end of last season and is now a free agent close to a new football transfer. Salernitana is endeavoring to acquire the signature of Franck Ribery and believes his arrival will have the same impact as Diego Maradona’s move to Napoli.
However, Ribery may raise their profile but unpropitious to bring Salernitana the same success that Diego Maradona brought to Napoli. Sporting director of Salernitana, Angelo Fabiani guesses bringing in Ribery would be a coup on par with Napoli’s 1984 Maradona deal.
In a conversation with Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, Fabiani said, “It is true that there may be an interest in this player. But to make marriages you have to have two. We have the idea. To find an agreement, it takes days, continuous talks. It is not even an economic problem, it is a problem of feasibility.”
Unlike Maradona, Ribery would not be expected to win games on his own. Despite losing their first two matches of the season, Fabiani believes Salernitana has such a strong squad that Ribery would merely be “the cherry on top.”
“Then if a cherry comes on the cake like Ribery, it will all be worth it. Bringing Ribery to Salerno would be like bringing Maradona to Naples. The player would raise the global vision of football in a market like ours. The offer is there and the player is evaluating it. We are confident.”
“Salernitana may be interested, but the player’s agreement must also arrive. At Salernitana, there is not only Simy. We have a strong team with many players who are certainties. The squad is complete in all its departments.”
