My Spirit Animal


is……Franco Baresi.

Italian football (soccer) player……..legend!

Central defender, sweeper.

Only 5 foot 8 inches tall – quite short for a central defender.

But boy could this man defend! He could read the game better than any other person in the whole sport!

His short stature meant that he could run faster and longer than the regular centre back! He also had the ball skills of a centre mid or an attacking mid.

He was the only man able to nullify the greatest player of all time, Maradona, during Maradona’s heyday at Napoli FC.

I played for a few years at semi-professional level here in Australia. Baresi was my idol. Covering the spaces, reading the game, tackling the dangerous folks! I learned a lot from watching endless clips of Franco Baresi!

I love you, man!
