"At a dinner in May, I asked him when he would be working as a coach again," Ernst Meier, who was president of the association ZSC for more than two decades, tells the Tages-Anzeiger. "He said: 'Never again. I have my skates, that I wore for 22 years, outside in the car. You can have them." Del Curto went out and brought them in.
Meier has collected many memorabilia over the course of his 22 years as president of the ZSC association, the second-biggest shareholder of the ZSC Lions. Many of them are on display in the "Quartierbeiz Blume" in Schwamendingen. Since May, also one of Arno Del Curto's skates is on display there.
