Week/Giornata 11: Serie A

Quotes of the Week from Italian Calcio

"Today we can't talk about tactics, it was all about utterly incredible individual errors. It's not Christmas yet and we are already gifting opponents.” --- Jose' Mourinho, manager of Internazionale.

“I don't even go that fast in my car!” --- Mirko Vucinic of AS Roma commenting about his last goal against Chelsea.

“On Wednesday 12 players turned up late! If I were to adopt certain punishments, I’d end up fielding the youth team every week." --- Carlo Ancelotti, manager of AC Milan.

“It was darkness a while back because it was too early, but I am starting to see a few rays of sunshine. It will finally be real daylight only when I get all my players back from injury.” --- Claudio Ranieri, manager of Juventus.

“The usual suspects will start insulting me again the moment we are defeated! Don't worry about that.” --- Claudio Ranieri, manager of Juventus.

“The mayor accused me of giving a coin to a disabled boy. In reality I gave that child a crucifix that I have held in my pocket for three or four years now. My wife got it for me at Fatima. The mayor insulted me. Evidently I'm unlucky, as even when I make an affectionate gesture I still get criticised.” --- Jose' Mourinho of Internazionale.

"I hope that Maradona comes to more of our games!" Alessandro Del Piero of Juventus.
