A former football player has been handed a second chance to work for the Italian Football League after he was denied a job at a rival league.
Filippi D’Amoro, 22, was offered the opportunity to work in the league’s advertising and promotion division when he joined the Serie A club as a youth player in 2011.
He spent two seasons at Fiorentina, but he was later sacked after his contract was terminated due to poor performance.
He now works for Italian Football Association (FIGC) in his role as a web design student.
However, he has yet to get the chance to get his job offer.
“I am really happy I was able to get my first job,” he told The Local.
I’m very grateful to the company, Fiorettina, and the other clubs and I’m sure we will continue to work together to do good things.” “
We had a great time with the recruitment of the students.
I’m very grateful to the company, Fiorettina, and the other clubs and I’m sure we will continue to work together to do good things.”
D’ Amoro said he was impressed with the level of professionalism and training at Fiordina and was pleased with the opportunities offered.
“The work is so well organised and the staff is great,” he added.
“Fiordina has been a big supporter of me and I have been lucky enough to have worked for them in the past.”
He added that he was happy to continue working in football and hoped to be able to continue his education as soon as possible.
The FIGC was established in 2018 as a part of the Italian government to promote sport in Italy.
The group currently has around 7,000 employees across the country.
