ROME – Thirty years after the splendor of the "magical nights" of Italia 90 when it almost happened to be a worldwide icon of the Azzurri, both for the goals in bursts and for those spirited eyes of "I can't believe it", Totò Schillaci is still talking of himself. This time, interviewed by I Lunatici on Rai Radio Due, as a dispenser of funny anecdotes. And vaguely disturbing as when he tells of the time he gave a head to Roberto Baggio , an immense and mild champion, the Buddhist with a fairy foot.
"He was the best Italian player, there are no more players like him. This episode happened in Turin, we both played in Juventus. I was going through a negative period, I came from a separation, the fans challenged me, and found me in the locker room one morning when I was reading the newspaper. He, playing, tried to hit the newspaper with his foot, and touched my face. I told him to stop, because he was in danger of hurting me. At one point I stood up and gave it a head. Then we clarified. Things that happen in the locker room should never come out. I have always been a serious professional, it was the only episode that stained my professional life ". (source Rai Radio Due)
