Ever since Moggi paid me so well after that Inter game in 98'.
Actually it was in 1996. Even though Serie A was by far the best league in the world back then most people here almost exclusively followed the EPL. So my friends were fans of Man Utd and Liverpool. I played but I didn't really follow professional football back then.
My football coach at the time told us that spring that Ajax and Juve were the best teams in Europe. That surprised me because all I ever heard about was Giggs, Beckham, Shearer, Ian Wright, Fowler etc. So basically to trump my friends I decided to follow Juve. I recall bragging about Serie A being stronger than their Micky Mouse league, how Beckham was just an overrated celebrity and so on. Yeah, 1999 pretty much shut me up for a while.
So put simply, I glory hunted when I was 11.
