Who could be more handsome than Cristiano Ronaldo, or almost as good as Zlatan Ibrahimovic? Graziano Pelle certainly believes he is both. He described himself as such recently to a Voetbal International. The 29 year old striker, who posted amazing number in the Netherlands. He has scored 9 goals in 14 matches, and he has a chance of getting into the double digits against Aston Villa on Monday night.
He started: “Cristiano is handsome, but I’m just a little bit taller. I could have been a professional dancer, but in the end I chose football. I won plenty of trophies with my sister Fabiana in dance. If I were to have been a dancer, I would have won it all.”
In fact, his father, Roberto, gave him lucky boxers to wear during competitions, which he refused to wear, just as he had done when he got offers to be an underwear model for women. “I could never do that to myself! I think that Beckham got a red card in 1998 because he posed as an underwear model too much (laughs).”
Graziano Pelle, the striker for Southampton, who recently received his first cap for Italy, certainly has a great sense of humor.
