Quotes of the Week in Italian Calcio
Kakha Kaladze of AC Milan putting his
best foot forward last year against
Cristiano Lucarelli of Parma.
“We have been working together for two months and he has never done the same thing twice in training. When you arrive in the morning, you never know what it is you'll be doing.” Amantino Mancini of Inter Milan on the secrets of his manager's success. He also usually never says the same thing twice except "Special" or "Greatest." :-)
“Quite frankly, I really don't want to end up like Ronaldo.” David Trezeguet of Juventus after his recent injury. No, he would have to be seen at parties in Rio at all hours of the day and night. Then wait for a golden offer from those new guys at Manchester City. ;-)
“His time will come slowly but surely - we shouldn't wait for him like a Messiah.” Claudio Ranieri, manager of Juventus, on Trezeguet. That could be a very long wait, Mister Ranieri. :-)
