Quotes of the Week in Italian Calcio

"You base footballer."

“It’s not true that there aren’t any journalists with technical knowledge, but there are possibly a few." But what about coaches with journalistic knowledge?

“After the latest episode I gave him some time to cool down and then we spoke and he (Antonio Cassano) immediately told me he had been a cretin – he used that exact word." Antonio is well-known for using very exact phrases. Such as "Vai a f------!"

“Football is different abroad... The Italian game is beautiful in so many ways, but we can still learn a lot from others." As Ian Rush of Wales said, "Playing in Italy was like being in a foreign country."
--- Roberto Donadoni, manager of the Azzurri, as quoted by Football Italia.

If you are new to calcio and the Italian language, I wrote an article called "Soccer Terminology in the Mother Tongue." Unfortunately, you will not learn the actual chants (i cori) from the stadiums, useful terms to describe rival players and fans (gli avversari), or how to compliment your favorite referee (l'arbitro). For those, you will need to make a visit to bella Italia... ;-)
