The seriousness of football in Italy

Can you believe that the Italian supporters of Juventus have have a problem with this girl (she is Mrs Laura Barriales from Spain) being the new spokesmodel of their team?

Yes they have. They surfed the Internet and found at least two tweets from Mrs Barriales suggesting that she could be a supporter of the Naples football team, something Mrs Barriales publicly denied.

Probably nothing in Italy is taken as seriously as football. Indeed Winston Churchill reportedly said: “Italian play football matches as if they were wars, and fight wars as if they were football matches”.
