Week/Giornata 10: Serie A


Quotes of the Week from Italian Calcio

"Those who betray me have to go a long way to make amends."

“I don't let my children do whatever they want and so why should I let my players get away with anything? That's the way I am and I won't change. The players know that - someone forgot that but it isn't a problem. We have a relationship of empathy, which means honesty and sincerity and not always kisses.” --- Jose' Mourinho of Internazionale.

“Are we cured? No, I think we’re still not back to our best, although that Real Madrid win was some great chicken soup.” --- Gigi Buffon of Juventus.

“David Beckham is incredible. I remember one night we arrived by train in Seville. At the station there were girls vaulting the gates to get a hug off him. It was like hanging around with The Beatles! I hadn’t seen anything like it, not even when Maradona was at Napoli.” --- Fabio Cannavaro of Real Madrid.

“The team in the locker room was happy with the news about Beckham, but what people don't know is that we'll also have George Clooney as Coach and Brad Pitt as assistant manager.” --- Kakha Kaladze of AC Milan.

“Gilardino deserves to be banned for five games. He even celebrated - it was incredible. And to think Fiorentina present themselves as champions of fair play and the terzo tempo…” --- Maurizio Zamparini, patron of Palermo.

“Alberto has been slaughtered over the past few days and I can't recall something like that in recent years. He apologised after the game and we thought his sincerity might be important.” --- Diego Della Valle, patron of ACF Fiorentina.
