Mercato, Piccoli, five teams and 160 teammates in 18 months
The 22-year-old striker has just joined Empoli after a year and a half full of bright spots, long waits and dashed hopes. A journey that uncovers the flaws in a system in trouble
Five teams in eighteen months, five dressing rooms, at least seven coaches, maybe eight, about 160 players, maybe two hundred. This last market, flooded with nonsense, rumors and little more, brought Roberto Piccoli to Empoli, a wonderful football place indeed, no: seriously, thought out, planned.
