EXCLUSIVE

In yesterday’s episode of Lunch Press we had the opportunity to have a chat with Gene GnocchiItalian comedian with a past as a footballer.

About the World Cup
“The World Cup had two things that struck me: the first is the mascot, which made Ciao from Italia 90 re-evaluate, i.e. the ugliest mascot conceived for a World Cup. It’s horrific.”

Messi vs. Maradona
“Messi and Maradona are two exaggerated talents, Messi went at a different speed than Maradona and he lacks the World Cup to say he was better than Maradona. I take them both. I hope he wins the World Cup, if he doesn’t make it I support Brazil, teams that are full of talent “.

About George and Timothy Weah
“Weah I remember it very well, the coast to coast ride which was then repeated by Theo Hernandez. Yesterday George’s son, in addition to scoring, also did some great things, a beautiful check on the wing. He gave me the impression of being an excellent footballer, obviously not at his father’s level ”.

About attacking midfielders and Charles De Ketelaere
“It’s true, football has become very physical, you need leg up but when I went to the stadium I went to see Gianni Rivera, to see what he was inventing that Sunday there. If this joy is lost, football becomes more predictable. Talent must be left free, and fewer and fewer talents are born. I like De Ketelaere even if he got off to a bad start, he’s an artist and needs to be pampered: in football there’s less and less time to pamper talent. Look at Platini and Zidane at Juventus, in the first 5-6 months they seemed scarce and then they became players to applaud. Couldn’t Roberto Baggio play in today’s football? Bullshit, this is bullshit right here. If Rivera had trained with today’s methodologies, but Baggio himself, they would be phenomenal players. But like all the great talents in the history of football.”

On Kakà, he was the first modern attacking midfielder according to Ancelotti
“I agree, he was impregnable, the classic trequartist acted from the frontline forward and the Brazilian acted across the pitch. Among the modern ones I have a soft spot for Samardzic, a great talent. I like Zielinski, I also like Kvara. But I repeat, I really like De Ketelaere. If I could I would speak to Pioli, telling him to interrupt the dualism with Brahim Diaz and to give him unconditional trust, to make him responsible by saying “Charles, I need you, you have to make a difference”… it’s good, therefore, the call-up for the World Cup, regain confidence. The last playmaker who played football is him, the link between the playmaker and the modern playmaker. Adli has the same problem as De Ketelaere: I like him a lot too. My favorite AC Milan player is still Rafael Leao.”
