Quotes of the Week from Italian Calcio

“Football saved me from being a criminal. I have never worked a day in my life, because I don't know how to do anything.” Antonio Cassano of Sampdoria.

“I don't have any regrets at all, but I started my life in football when I was just 17 and maybe I didn't live my youth as I wanted.” Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus.

“Even my mum sometimes criticises Adriano and I always tell her that she doesn't know him so she shouldn't judge.” Mario Balotelli of Internazionale.

“I know that you, Mr. Sconcerti, are friends with Roberto Mancini and this is why you ask me these questions. You are not my friend, you are a journalist. If you invited me to dinner then I would not attend.” Jose' Mourinho of Internazionale.

“An idiot doesn't become Einstein overnight.” Claudio Ranieri of Juventus.
