“Political leaders in sport have to believe in the essential values, knowledge of the sports world, personal abilities and ideas. Sport's is a complex world and for the politicians is very important to be aware of the dynamics, to be able to dialogue and to listen. It is also important the ability to lead the people involved to common goals, overcoming individualistic logic.
Above all political leaders should have a future vision, an ability to intercept the emerging needs and to carry out structural, plans and programs to promote and sustain innovative projects. “
