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.
