Ferrara takes out Quags (but not the one you were thinking of)

New, comments

So I was reading an article about the Nazionale training at Vinovo this weekend, as the next qualifier is in Turin. Who would have thought Grosso would debut in Nazionale in Turin before Bianconero? Apparently Ferrara's son, Paolo, took out Quagliarella in a training game. This was shocking: I had no idea Ferrara's son was in our youth system.

I cruised over to the Juventus website and was looking through the various youth teams to see who else was there that I didn't know about. I knew the great Boniperti's grandson was there, and obvious Giuseppe Giovinco with the Primavera. I discovered Simone Esposito's younger brother plays for the piccoli gobbi, and the last find, Federico Marchisio, also a midfielder.

Now obviously there is not a great chance that all these players will even become Serie A players, much less Juve...but how awesome would it be to see Federico Marchisio play alongside his brother? Or the Esposito brothers, or of course, the Giovincos? Our Primavera keeps churning out quality talent, that is one thing for certain.

Paolo Ferrara being consoled. Lippi probably told him Quags was already busted up.
