The former Gialloblù and Roma player would have dissolved his reserves and agreed to run for the center-left coalition in the next administrative elections
Verona had launched him on the football fields (he wore the Gialloblù from 1993 to 1996: 44 appearances and three goals) and then made him known to half the world, football and otherwise. And for Verona, today, he takes the field as a candidate for mayor in next year’s local elections in the center-left coalition. Damiano Tommasi, former Italian national team, would have dissolved his reserves and accepted the challenge. “He was willing to deal with all the realities for an alternative idea of the city, in view of the formalization of his candidacy – reads a note issued by the coalition -. A path that is an opportunity and which asks everyone is starting. to get involved in a great project “.
gratitude and minimum wage
From Sant’Anna d’Alfaedo, in Lessinia, married, six children, an accountant diploma, Tommasi lives in Valpolicella. But what prompted him in his choice? A question of gratitude towards “his” city? Likely. On the other hand, gratitude is a term that seems to belong to the vocabulary of the former national team player. As a Roma player (1996-2006), the Crusader broke. It was the summer of 2004. And a long ordeal began for him. Tommasi lost a whole season and he, out of gratitude to the Giallorossi club that had looked after him and waited for him, asked to renegotiate the contract by signing a one-year contract with a minimum wage of 1,500 euros per month.
the first “Chinese”
After Roma he married the Levante, then the QPR to finally become the first Italian to play in the Chinese professional league, it was 2009, with Tianjin Teda. Once he gave up his shoes (last club, the Fiorita di San Marino) he took on the role of president of the Italian Footballers Association from 2011 to 2020. But now for Tommasi a new game begins: to become mayor of Verona. The challenge has now launched.
