The Daily Drool: Massimo Paci

1 Aug

Well, seeing as the transfer market is open until August 31st, I think I’ll continue with my transferring Drools. Defender Massimo played from 2006-2011 for Parma in Serie A before moving last season to Serie B side Novara. He’s going back to Serie A this year and playing for Siena.

 

The Daily Drool: Sotiris Ninis

7 Jul

He may look like a Muppet Baby, but attacking midfielder/winger Sotiris is actually 22! Born to Greek parents in Albania, he recently signed to Parma after  being at Panathinaikos since 2006. He has represented Greece at the U19, U21 and senior levels.

The Daily Drool: Hernan Crespo

6 Jan


Parma striker Hernan has scored over 300 goals in his 18 year career. He has also won an Olympic Games silver medal, an English Premier League title (with Chelsea),  a Copa Libertadores and three Scudettos. Not too shabby! He played with the Argentine U23 team in 1996 and the senior side 1995-2007.

The Daily Drool: Sebastian Giovinco

23 Dec

Attacking midfielder Sebastian signed to Parma this August after a loan stint from Juventus. He has appeared for the Italian U21 and Olympic teams and got his first call up to the senior side in February 2011.

The Daily Drool: Champions League Group A: Guiseppe Rossi

4 Nov


Handsome Villareal striker Guiseppe Rossi is currently sidelined. He just had surgery for ligament damage and will be out for at least six months. He’s New Jersey-born to Italian immigrant parents. He’s played for Manchester United, Newcastle and Parma as well. He’s also played for the Italian National Team (U-16, U17, U18, U21, Olympic and senior teams) since 2003. Get well soon, boo!

The Daily Drool: Blerim Džemaili

1 Sep


Midfielder Blerim is a Swiss footballer of Albanian descent who was born in Yugoslavia. He started his career in 2003 with FC Zürich and was chosen as captain in 2005 – one of the youngest captains in Swiss footy history. He has since played for Bolton Wanderers, Torino, Parma and as of 2011, Napoli. He’s only 25. I’ve got to wonder how many languages he speaks by now? A citizen of the world, our Blerim! He has made 13 appearances for the Swiss National Team since 2006.

The Daily Drool: Amauri

26 Jul

Since I’m seeing Juventus play Club America tonight, thought I would feature a Juve player. Brazilian born striker Amauri Carvalho de Oliveira has been playing for Juve since 20o8 although he spent the first 6 month of this year playing for Parma.  He became an Italian citizen in April 2010 and made his debut for the Italian national team in a post-World Cup friendly vs. Côte d’Ivoire that August.
