Sex or No Sex, that is the question.


In the days prior to the start of the world cup, the question of sex has divided the coaches. Giovanni Trapattoni, coach of Italy is demanding a mix of "abstinence and moderation" for his players, while the French coach says "yes" to sex and has invited the wives/girlfriends of the players to stay for several days at the training camp in Seoul.

"After the first round they can see their wives. First they have to win some matches," said Trapattoni. "At the world cup, top physical condition is mandatory."

At the other side of the debate, the French team can enjoy the company of their wives from May 30 to June 8. Henri Emile, assistant to coach Roger Lemerre, is of an opinion directly opposite to that of Trapattoni and Brazil Coach Felipe Scolari (another fanatic for abstinence). For Emile, the presence of women was "very important for France's world cup victory in 1998."

Italian keeper Gianluigi Buffon was resigned to the restrictions. "Well, the world cup is an occasion to rest a bit."

His teammate Alessandro Del Piero joked that he was planning on bringing some "special films" with him. Other Italians remembered that Serse Cosmi, current coach of Perugia, when he was coaching Pontevecchio, would show X-rated videos on the bus on the way to the stadiums. Buffon then said, "I'd rather read a three thousand page book."

So it seems that the French will be able to enjoy the company of their wives and girlfriends thanks to the permissive spirit of their head coach. But the wives of Petit and Silvestre will have to quickly return to France because they have small children, and Veronique, Zinedine Zidane's wife, will be absent because she is expecting their third child probably at the end of this week.

Interesting and insightful question, Assassin. So far, we don't know.

In 1998, the conservative Passarella allowed the players to meet with their wives/girlfriends as long as the did it outside the training complex. They had to go to local hotels etc.
