Urbano Cairo sues Rocco Commisso


Torino president Urbano Cairo has sued Rocco Commisso, president of Fiorentina, for his “repeated” accusations over the past few years. Cairo, who is also Chairman and CEO of RCS MediaGroup S.p.A, has often been accused by Commisso of conducting a smear campaign against Fiorentina through his chain of Italian newspapers/

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that:

“Urbano Cairo, also in his capacity as director of RCS, has sued Rocco Commisso who, on several occasions, has accused him of being the inspirer of a fictitious smear campaign conducted by the newspapers of his publishing group against Fiorentina. The accusation, besides being totally fabricated sounds paradoxical for those who, like Cairo, had welcomed and sympathized with Commisso’s entry into Italian football. The obstinacy shown by Commisso in pursuing such an infamous accusation left the RCS chairman no choice but to defend his honorability and the prestige of the newspapers unjustly attacked.”
