Parma’s ace defender Paletta chirped that he is pretty happy about his debut in the Italian Team. However he feels disappointed about outcome of the Spain Vs Italy Match. Playing along with Leo Messi for Argentina, the defender bagged the game in the Under Twenty World Cup. Tonight the player made his remarkable Azzurri bow in which they faced a 1-0 defeat, earning praises from one and all.
The twenty year old defender says that post his debut on Monday he has settled in pretty well and his team mates have given him a very warm welcome. He adds that since his family is from Catanzaro, he is well connected to his roots.
Talking about the variance in fitness levels of the players of Spain and Italy, Cesare Prandelli, the Azzuri Coach criticized that this difference was much embarrassing. However, Palette had to say otherwise. He commented that leaving everything else, the reason why Spain could maintain their solid fitness level throughout the game is because they know how to make the ball run. He thinks that the entire Italian defense team worked perfectly and Spain won only because of lucky ricochet but on a whole the Italy defended quite marvelously. This ex Liverpool defender (centre half) was heavily praised by Prandelli for his fantastic performance.
Besides being an ace defender Paletta is also known for his artistic skills especially caricatures. His caricature calendar featuring his teammates from Parma was release as a way to raise fund for a charity. However this versatile player hasn’t done any for his new Italian Teammates. He started it off as a joke by drawing caricatures of his teammates on postcards, and he never had any clue that it will be turned into a full calendar.
