It reminds him of those Saturday afternoons when he used to watch the Serie A highlights. It would begin with snippets of goals scored by Gullit, van Basten, Vialli, Manicini, Baresi, Signori, Rijkaard, Fonseca and others. There was a superb theme song that set just the right tone for settling in and watching clever football played in huge cauldron-like stadiums. Then the song would end, and the camera would pan out to show the line-ups for the featured match.
It seemed like Italian football was always played in the sun. Just brilliant.
