Swedish women infuriate Gaucci
Tuesday 18 November, 2003

President Luciano Gaucci has hit out at female stars Victoria Svensson and Hanna Ljungberg for turning down the chance to join Perugia.

Gaucci is hoping to make his club the first to field a woman in Serie A but things are not going according to plan.

Svensson revealed on Sunday that she wouldn’t be moving to Italy and Ljungberg has now mirrored her decision.

"I don’t think that women can compete against men on a regular basis," Svensson stated. "We would not be able to get the better of players such as Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Nesta."

Those comments were not well received by Gaucci who had pinpointed the two Swedish players in his latest headline grabbing transfer stunt.

"They’ve wasted three months of our time," the Umbrian chief told newspaper Aftonbladet. "If they didn’t feel like joining Perugia then they could have told me immediately.

"But I’m not giving up on my dream. A woman player will appear for my club and there are many that would love the opportunity to do so."

However, Ljungberg claims that she was only made an official offer last week and she wasn’t totally convinced by it.

Meanwhile, stories in Brazil report that one of their female internationals, Marta, could now be targeted by the Italian side.

However, the plan to sign a woman player may fail as the FIGC is already moving to tie up the loophole that would allow a female to play in a man’s team.

I read the thread title and thought "Still can't get laid eh?" :p

It actually would've been interesting to see women play in Serie A

:LOL: This is the perfect ending to this ridiculous story. When women are ready to compete (in a sporting sense) with men equally, they will, and it shouldn't happen as some sort publicity stunt.

For once I agree! Gaucci AKA The PT Barnum of football should concentrate on helping his team win rather than getting them in the news: The Ben Johnson hiring, the firing of the Korean player, the Quadaffi signing..now this! CAFONE!
Oh yeah he also claimed a few weeks back that refs have a vendetta against Perugia

Wait...hold on, I'm still coming to terms with this...We are agreed, and you've put in a positive remark backed by both factual evidence and a logical argument...This is fantastic...:LOL: (you'll make it yet, I'm convinced)

Sing with me, everyone.......


"All we are saying, is give peace a chance"

If he wanted to have a female player in Serie A, why doesn't he try one of the US or Chinese nationals??


Fred, Gray lives in Australia, but he is South korean.

For the fifteenth time, already ;)

That's a big assumption to make Sergio... actually, both my grandparents on my father's side are from North Korea. They didn't know eachother in NK, but when the war started, they both fled to the South. They met there and got married, and since nationality is usually considered the same as your father's, I guess that would make me North Korean :p

There's something to go and tell ur friends about... u're in daily contact with a communist :p (i hope i don't offend any follow north koreans here when i say that)

Never!!!








Oops, sorry...typo...

I meant yes :D

Why? Isn't Hanna Ljungberg considered as one of the best woman players? Or wasn't skill the issue here? Why one of the Chinese nationals?

I remember one of the last WWC finals was between the US and China. That's when Brandi Chastain took off her shirt :eek:

You're kidding me, right??


Look, it's not where you're from, it's who you are.

You could live right down the street from me, but if you're a jerk, I'm not going to like you just because you're from the same country as me.
Please don't lump me into that "ugly American" pool, I get the feeling sometimes that I'm not welcome here simply because I am american, and we're not exactly the darlings of the world right now. Not by you, obviously, or the moderators, but by some people. I can just sense it in the way that they respond to some of my posts, but that's cool.


Damn, gray.

Gaucci is just a clown, I don't think these girls ever wanted to go there but of course they were interested in what they could offer. From what I have heard the contracts were not very impressive.
