Italy-Liechtenstein, Mario Frick: "My son and Zaniolo were playing in the courtyard in Terni"
"Liechtenstein is small, tiny, has just 38 thousand inhabitants but it is my land. And Balzers my country. It is a small municipality that meets after the Swiss border. I was born in Chur (in Switzerland, in fact), just because, at the time, my mom was looking for a fully equipped hospital … It was in Balzers that I started scoring the first goals in 1990 and the last of a career that brought me to do even the free: at 40 years of age I had lost the flicker in front of it but not the desire to defend the colors of my country. And then you stepped back "
"I carry in my heart the experience in Serie A. Those days were exceptional because playing in Serie A, in that Serie A, was a real dream
The rose of my Verona was of great quality, there were Oddo, Camoranesi, Gilardino, Di Vaio and Adailton. But all the Serie A of those times was. Now the times have changed profoundly. In Europe there is only Juventus who knows how to be respected and now let's see what Napoli will do. In Europa League I was deeply disappointed by Inter, which came out against Eintracht, which ranks between the fifth and sixth place of a Bundesliga which has also fallen, lately, from a technical point of view. Apart from Barcelona and Real Madrid, Europe is dominated by the Premier League teams, currently the most beautiful championship "
Mario Frick has two sons Yanik Frick (born in 1998) and Noah Zinedine Frick (born in 2000). Both are football players. Both were named in honor of Yannick Noah, a former tennis player and idol of Mario Frick. The second was named Zinedine in honor of Zidane. Both of Frick's children are part of the Liechtenstein national team but only Noah Zinedine Frick was called up for the match against Italy.
"Yanik, my oldest son, played in the backyard with Nicolò Zaniolo, in Terni. They were 4 years old. Igor and I were, in 2002-2003, the Ternana strikers, as well as friends. It is the first time I tell this story: I was excited to see Nicolò's talent blossom: Mancini has a real treasure at his disposal. Like Kean: the Azzurri will be reborn in the sign of the young, you will see "
