This gem today comes from il Sussidiario-
Interviewer: "Is Molinaro disappointed with not being called up by Marcello Lippi?"
Molinaro's agent: "Yes, very disappointed. He was hoping to be in the Nazionale, and always has hoped to be. Cristian did very well in his role, whether at Juventus, playing 80 games in a row, or at Stuttgart where he has been selected 19/19 times, without missing a minute. How could he not think about the Nazionale? Regardless of comparisons between other players, which is not part of our style, the no-call-up was a disappointment, and completely incomprehensible!"
