Brown Bear from Northern Italy. Charismatic and effusive. A great tactician and motivator of his players. Away from football he’s regarded as sophisticated and cultured. On match days he’s a ‘bear possessed’ and gesticulates wildly from the touchline. Showed much courage in introducing a female (Iris) into the men’s game.
