Like love and music, football or soccer or whatever tickles your fancy, is both a universal language and a universal right. There's nothing that instills a euphoric sense of mania as soccer does to me, except maybe a really good spaghetti bolognese but my doctor says I should cut down on those.

At the18, my number one obligation is to show you the sides of football we often neglect: the dark, the ugly and the unspoken. All the things that make it even more beautiful. 

When I'm not drooling over football, I enjoy online video games, juicy cheeseburgers and writing short stories.
