Probably almost no one knows him but in Italy he is known by everyone because he was a jounalist of 90° minuto, the correspondent from Ascoli.
He was famous (and extremely funny) for mispronouncing the names of the foreign players and because he always looked extremely embarassed in front of the camera, even if had done it for years. Rozzi, the chairman of Ascoli, once told him: "I played a nasty trick on you, I bought four players whose names are not easy to be pronounced. Cazzi tua!". (Cvetkovic, Arslanovic and I don't know whom else... not Trifunovic, as it is often mentioned, because Rozzi had bought Trifunovic many years before).

Looks like he was a nice guy.

PS: It takes an alert eye to distinguish nowadays 90° Minuto set and OB Vans reports from those of the 80's as are featured in the video Toni posted. God bless RAI, the cheapest public service television in Western Europe. :dielaugh:

I knew this guy, being the fact that I followed 90o minuto from 1990.
