JUST SOME THINKING
Today is a feast day for Italy, Turin - the first Italian capital - is decorated with the national flags to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italian unification and I really enjoy this day. Unfortunately, there are some things that upset me , like the news coming from Japan or what happened to some players and I want to tell you about it, so you can share with me some of these thoughts.
Eric Abidal, Barcellona and national French team defender was diagnosed with the liver tumor and will be operated today. I know he is going to fight the disease like he is used to fight on the pitch. He was a great opponent, playing for the French team in the final in Berlin, but today I feel like being his team mate and just want to wish him good luck and hope to see him fit and healthy on the pitch.
I was shocked to hear what has happened to Vjačeslav Malafeev, National Russian team and Zenit goalkeeper , that we played against three years ago in Champions. He was given a terrible news about his wife's death while he was abroad, preparing for the game against Twente in Europe League competition. I really don't know what to say, there are no right words. I just want to express my heartfelt condolences.
