The two-time former Formula One champion downplayed his third-place finish three weeks ago in China and said progress is going slow for Ferrari as it tries to make up ground on Mercedes.If there was any lingering doubt Montreal was not a proper football town, the events of the previous 48-hours must surely have dispelled them. Thursday lunch time, following recent shuttle diplomacy and negotiations, the Montreal Impacts founding owner Joey Saputo was announced as a major partner of the new ownership group of fabled Italian club Bologna. Only five other Serie A clubs have amassed more Scudettos (Serie A Titles) Quite some rise for the recently turned 50-year old Saputo, who cut his football teeth in the early 1980s as the Saputo Groups lead contact for their sponsorship of NASLs Montreal Manic. The announcement from Bologna came hot on the heels of Wednesdays launch for the Montreal Canadiens of Club 1909 - a worldwide marketing initiative which is broadly based along similar lines of Manchester Uniteds highly successful global strategy. You can be guaranteed as part of the process Canadiens owner Geoff Molson would have reached out to good friend Joey Saputo, to get his advice on Club 1909. Montreal is now a city with two owners with ambitious plans to reach well outside the local market place, as ways for their teams to benefit in their respective codes and leagues. Quite remarkably, just like the Habs, Bologna was also founded in 1909. Who though could have scripted that when Saputo and Nick De Santis travelled to Bologna in early 2012 to watch Marco Di Vaio play and to sit down with the Serie A marksman to negotiate becoming the Impacts original Designated Player, that less than three-years later, Saputo would return to the Italian city to purchase a club Di Vaio is so highly revered at. It was exactly this time last year that with rumours swirling Di Vaio was on his way back to Bologna that the Impact announced the MLS MVP candidate would indeed be returning for 2014. Now we know that with Di Vaios appointment to the new management structure at the Stadio Renato DallAra the 38-year old had much more than retirement on his mind when just two weeks ago the Impact announced their top scorer was hanging up his boots at seasons end. Di Vaio will have played a pivotal role in bringing together Bolognas previous ownership group with Saputo and his partners. New York Lawyer Joe Tacopina will take up the role of Bologna President. Impacts International Business Director Nick De Santis whho traveled back to Bologna with Saputo early this week has also been named to Bolognas management team. MLB Jerseys For Sale. It would seem the purchase of an Italian club was the natural progression of the Impacts flirtation with Italian football, which dates back well over a decade. They have had a long standing relationship with Fiorentina, and only late last month Saputo and De Santis were in Turin to meet with members of the Agnelli family, owners of Juventus. Saputo made it very clear in the media conference call his investment in Bologna was a personal one and not an investment for the Impact. From the purchase, the Impact will certainly benefit, primarily on the football side. This will not just be limited to the Academy but also for FC Montreal, the clubs reserve team which begins play in USL PRO next season and also for the senior team. The two clubs front offices will also benefit. With many Italian clubs in precarious financial positions, much can be learned from the MLS business model. Having already agreed a €7m [$10m] payout to the previous regime, Bolognas new ownership group has committed to inject €13m [$18m] into the club. Relegated last season, Bolognas immediate focus and priority is to return the club to Serie A. Eight games into a forty-two game season they are just a point out of top place. You can expect at the conclusion of the MLS season, Di Vaio will have his work cut out for him as the Rossoblu weigh up their options in the January transfer window and look to add players to best position themselves in their push for promotion. Before that, comes Saturday afternoons match for the Impact against Toronto FC. Di Vaio traveled to Toronto from Bologna earlier today. Having scored two very well taken goals in the Impacts penultimate home game of the season against the playoff bound Revs last Saturday afternoon. One of the top scorers in the modern era of Serie A will bring the curtain down on his professional career a week Saturday. It all started for Di Vaio, a native Roman, back in 1993 with his hometown Lazio and will end in Montreal at what is sure to be a sold out Saputo Stadium against the best story in MLS this season, DC United.
