Quotes of the Week in Italian Calcio

"You base footballer."

“I am not an ambiguous or elusive type of person – I like to look people in the eye.”

Marco Materazzi of Internazionale.

Except when he is whispering sweet nothings into the ear of Zinedine Zidane.

“The longer it goes on, the uglier it is getting.”

Gennaro "Rino" Gattuso of AC Milan.

Sounds like a title for his next TV commercial?

“If you go three weekends without scoring, it becomes a problem.”

Walter Novellino, manager of Torino.

Depends what type of scoring you are talking about, Mister Novellino...

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... ;-)
