In addition, the board of the institution told the fans some details of the negotiation in a brief statement. “Varese announces that on the occasion of the Board meeting held this afternoon at the Enerxenia Arena, the general director Luis Scola communicated to the directors and owners of the club the desire to exercise the option to acquire 51% of the company’s shares, as required by the contract signed last summer,” they assured. And they added: “The operation will become official only after all the required bureaucratic procedures have been completed. The terms of the agreement are and will remain private and confidential.”

“I want to take Varese to where it deserves to be,” said the 42-year-old former player, who arrived at the rojiblanco club after passing through Olimpia Milano in the same country. Later he warned: “The project is for five years and the results will begin to arrive from the third or fourth.” Now, Luifa’s idea is to climb one more step in his ambition to grow the team and that is why he joined from the investment in the institution’s shares.

Varese finished the Serie A season in 12th place out of 16, with a balance of 12 wins and 18 losses in 30 games played. He was two wins away from entering the playoff positions, one of the goals that will surely be set for the next championship.
