Fabrizio Miccoliformer playmaker of Juventus, Fiorentina And Palermo, goes back to writing on social networks after returning to freedom. Sentenced to three years and three months of imprisonment for extortion aggravated by the mafia method, the Romario del Salento was released from prison just under a month ago and today, after a long silence, he published a long letter on social media.
Miccoli: “I made so many mistakes”
In a long post published on Instagram, the former Salento footballer retraced the hard years lived after the wiretapping that had seen him ask the son of Nino Lauricella, a well-known exponent of Palermo organized crime, the return of sums of money to an entrepreneur for account of a friend of his former physiotherapist of Palermo. On social media Miccoli apologizes: “12 years ago I made a big mistake. One of those life changing mistakes. I had it all. I was the captain of Palermo, I did the job I had always dreamed of doing since I was a child and the people of Palermo made me feel at home. In these 12 very long years I have always preferred silence. I have read everything but have never replied. When you are a footballer in Serie A you have a lot of attention. A lot of people want a piece of you. Many know you but you don’t know anyone. You don’t know who you can trust. I’ve actually made more than one mistake. The first big mistake was to always be available to everyone. Anyone who lived in Palermo in those years knows“.
Miccoli: “A day in prison lasts an eternity”
The former captain of the Palermo he then continued: “The second mistake was that of using the wrong words, words that I did not think and never will think. Often when you are at the top you feel invincible, instead you are only human. I apologized a while ago for those words and I do it again. The sentence came last year. A sentence that I did not share because I felt distant and I am far from that world, but a sentence that I respected by spontaneously presenting myself the following day in a maximum security prison, again by choice of mine, to serve my sentence. One day inside it seems infinite, 6/7 months, an eternity. I have served the greatest punishment in these 12 years, every day, in seeing myself approached to something that I am not and that does not belong to me“.
Miccoli: “I want to show the real Fabrizio”
Finished in prison on November 24, 2021, after a few months Miccoli regained his freedom thanks to the appeal accepted by the surveillance court of Venice. For this reason, the former footballer wanted to take a few days to think about what to say and write: “A few weeks ago I went free. I am not asking to be understood, I am not asking that what happened is forgotten. This is not what I want to achieve with this letter. I want alone, after 12 long years, clarify my position, have my say instead of having others say it. As on the pitch after a defeat you cannot replay the game you just lost, you can train and try to do better in the next game. I am almost 43 years old and I hope to still have many “games” for recover and show the real Fabrizio Miccoli. Thank you”.
