Gennaro Gattuso - 'The Ultimate Barbarian'
I had this nickname for AC Milan's Italian midfielder Gennaro Gattuso. That is the barbarian. His entics on the field makes him the ultimate warrior every team wants and puts Paddy Vieira to shame to be honest. Yesterday while the Italians are celebrating Fillipo Inzaghi's goal, he went over to the coach, tried to strangle him and ran off after that. Lippi's face was priceless as he seemed like he's sh*tting himself when Gattuso appeared from nowhere to strangle him.
Anyway the video below is something like wht Rio Ferdinand did to the England players. Prank'd!
Seriously, do you even need to understand Italian in order to watch it? I don't think so! Ah, you know..the Italians, they are so expressive and waving their hand around and yea, waving their hands around is their kind of language. At the back portion of the video, it seemed like a modern day drama with him shouting all the *beeps* and *tooot* around and even had 2 kicks at the accomplice! This guy does need anger management and I've never seen someone that looses his cool as quickly as him. What a legend.
Okay, I'm not done yet...
Gattuso vs Poulsen. Look at his reaction. can't help but think is there any footballers more passionate than him? As in..showing it outwards? HAHA
