Soccer Coup: Kobe ‘Briante’ visited Milanello and spoke fluent Italian in a Milan shirt

Galliani will have enjoyed this!

NBA and LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant visited Milanello today and showed off his linguistic skills with some perfectly fluent Italian.

And he wasn’t just spouting generic niceties either: citing Van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard from the great Sacchi side, he’s clearly being genuine when he says ‘Milan has always been my favourite Squadra‘.

Otherwise, in terms of impact, Galliani must be delighted with what was an unexpected marketing coup for the Milan giants Stateside.

Hero!
