Exclusive: Inter’s Francesco Toldo Talks Fashion, Footie & Tight Trousers

imageThis weekend in Milan whilst drinking ourselves into a champagne- induced stupor at Donatella Versace’s Versace Pour Homme fragrance party we happened to bump into the lovely Francesco Toldo of Inter-Milan.

As the Italian goalkeeper for Donatella’s son Daniel’s favourite team, we think FT is the jackpot as far as football players go: the mandatory cheeky grin, requisite muscle-bound thighs and fun-loving personality. Hell, he was willing to talk about fashion, footballers’ legs and David Beckham’s golden balls. What’s not to love?

Click through for our exclusive chat with Francesco.

What were your favorite pieces in the Versace menswear show?
“There was a long blue shearling jacket I loved.”

What about those tight trousers on the runway?  You have great thighs, would you don those trousers?
“It’s true football players have great thighs. I like to wear tight trousers sometimes to show them off (laughs).”

What do you think of the David Beckham underwear ad for Emporio Armani?
“It’s great.”

His balls look overwhelming in the photograph – do all soccer players have big nuts?
“Yes we do. We all have enormous balls” (laughs).

Are all famous footie players unfaithful?
“No! You have to be grounded. I have a wife and two kids, and we are really happy. When you are famous there’s more opportunities but I think every football player has to decide do they want a showgirl girlfriend or do they want a wife who can be your partner and help you along the way.”

Do Italian WAGs like to shop as much as the English ones?
My wife is very good at shopping, she can tell you herself.

At this point Francesco leads us over to Manuela, dressed in a black Versace dress.

Where are your favorite places to shop here in Milan?
“I love Versace, Donatella does the best dresses. I love going to Prada for accessories. I also like Alessandro Del’Acqua and Antonio Marras – they are a pair of designers who aren’t so well known but do really interesting collections.”

What do you think about how the English WAGs dress?
“I think they overdo it a bit too much. They should take it down a notch and try to be a bit more sophisticated and simple.”

Do you ever worry about other women hanging around your man?
“I have my fair share of onlookers too! I’m not at all worried. I’m not jealous and I totally trust him. We’ve been married 9 years.”

What’s your secret?
“Honesty, sincerity and being really communicative with each other.”

    <a >Cv interview questions

  2. Elise says:

    Fourth- you make me laugh.  I have the second and third of those Frank pics saved in my pic files with the captions “In the name of all that is holy” and “Oh my freaking God”  I get quite spiritual at times like these <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />. 

    MrsXabi- I graciously leave it to you to represent your love object.  I don’t see anything in him, just as you don’t in NonfatFrank or JT.  I, however, do remain open to persuasions of hotness regarding any player, as long as they don’t play for Arsenal.  Some things I just cannot do!

  3. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Nice work Elsie but what if ‘heaven forbid’ you dont actually fancy either FatLamps or JT.
    Yeah he got a hot bod but Frank really doesnt do it for anymore.
    A girl needs more variety, guess ill have to look for more myself, damn lol

    *scurries off to get wet towel to cool self in preperation for man hunting again*

  4. The Fourth Official says:

    Elise, the last three of Frank have almost converted me.  Damn.  One more and I’m on the dark side.

    Still no to JT.

    Alex is pregnant!!!!!!!!!!???????????????

  5. MrsJamieRedknapp says:

    I did notice Stevie doing the rocking thing. 
    Please don’t tell me Alex is knocked up again!!

    Bet Pancake is nervous…

  6. The Fourth Official says:

    MrsXabi, you’re a peach.  Thanks for thinking of Keano for me.  I think #16 would have won any thigh-off.


  7. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Hmmmm im starting to think kickette arent going to provide us with the man meat (erm well that sounded dirtier than it should have) we so desire.

    So anyways ive taken the liberty to trawl through the net and find a few piccys for everyone to enjoy……..

    http://www.soccerbid.co.uk/listman/listings/image…  one for the older lady

    Right I really hope these links work cos I have wasted ssoooo much work time.  Hope theres at least one for everyone.


  8. Robin says:

    What fun! Kickette you are pure class.

  9. Elise says:

    The links are lovely.  THanks girls!  Here’s a few favourites of my own.  I hope the links work.  If not, the cut and paste time investment will be SO worth it! But I warn you, a couple of these should come with fire brigade warnings!





    And then…

    http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i115/footballboners/John Terry/terryars2.jpg

    And okay, neither of these are ‘nearly naked’, but I just found them and they are so cute (the first) and scruffy-good (the second)-




  10. LoveLamps says:

    I completely agree with the earlier post by The Fourth Official – Alex Curran really is Crocs compared to this lovely woman!

    Great interview Kickette!

    Now, as the the second post by The Fourth Official, so us some SKIN!!!

  11. The Fourth Official says:

    MrsXabi, I second that emotion.  I get grumpy this time of year when the players are adding layers, not taking them off.  And when we *do* get a glimpse of skin, it’s the colour of blue cheese.  Kickette, a naked baller please.

  12. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    OHMIGAWWWD!! I cant believe you asked that question, and he actually answered it HAHA!!!! Love you Kickette!!

    Now can we please have some yummy footballer nakedness to ease my hangover????

  13. michelle TN says:

    Great interview! Excellent questions, you guys always make me laugh. And I’m thoroughly jealous that you got to see Figo in person, AH!  Now I will go back to my happy hopeful thoughts that Figo decides to retire to the MLS so that I may have a chance to see him in the flesh . . . slim hopes but they still exist.

  14. Kandi Kane says:

    LOL interview Kickettes.  Thanks for the work you put into this site.

    Did anyone notice Stevie G. doing the rocking baby thing after his hat trick v. Luton?

  15. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Glad my hard work has been appriciated, it really was a chore trawling through all those pictures haha <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_rolleye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

    If I get another spare moment I may look for some more.

    TFO aka TOL it really did take a lot for me to add Keane to the list but as I knew it would quite possibly make your day I felt it was my duty to pass it on and make January that little brighter for everyone!!

    I know he not fat sarah but its just fun to call him fat lamps!!

    My hangover has almost gone now and my head is now filled with lots of other things I wont be sharing <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  16. Sarah x says:

    Thanks For The Pictures MXA <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    Frank Lampard Aint Fat Thoo <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />
    And Have You Seen Them Rolls That Roy Keane Has In Them Pictures Haha

  17. The Fourth Official (aka The Older Lady) says:

    ROLLS!!  <cuffs young cub>  Those are thighs of thunder, my dear.

  18. kaya says:

    Now is it really fair to compare Alex and Manuela?
    It’s not Alex’s fault if she turns into an orange in her attempt to match Manuela’s skin color.
    And it’s not Alex’s fault if she occasionally (OK, well, always) slips over that fine line between enchancing ones features with makeup and Tammy Fae Baker.
    Is it really fair to hold english WAGs to such stringent standards of class? Clearly we;re nitpicking here… I mean, the difference between Elen Rives and any given Italian WAG is a mere pair of knee socks. No?

  19. carly says:

    wow Kickette! I’m impressed (with you! not Toldo and wife) <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  20. brandy says:

    Kickette you are wonderful:

    His balls look overwhelming in the photograph

  21. Cate says:

    Wow, Kickette! Very nice! You are moving up in the world. Pretty soon you’ll be off on your own, have forgotten all about us… *sniff*

    But Toldo and his wife sound charming. They seem to have a lot of class, and I think it comes across in their responses (while I wasn’t there, obviously, I think that from their words). Props to you for getting the interview, and I hope to see more in the future? :D

  22. coolbyrne says:

    It’s refreshing to read an interview with a footballer who has a wicked sense of humour and seems so down to earth.  His wife’s a knockout and yet also seems to have more than air between her ears.  A gorgeous, classy couple.  Well done with the interview!

  23. Mike says:

    I’d like to see his big balls

  24. lose that girl says:

    True to Manuela’s word, I bet she has her own on-lookers. She’s lovely.


    But think…if all the UK WAGS followed Manuela’s advice, just what would we dish about? I love the fashion disasters that are Elen, Carly et al. Please don’t change, UK WAGS!

  25. Becca x says:

    Oohh Wel Done Kickette,
    Impressed <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  26. The Fourth Official says:

    I’m just in genuine awe that you had the balls to ask him about his balls!  <applauds> 

    Manuela?  Love the hair, love the cheekbones, love the skin, love the gown. She is to Alex Curran as Manolo’s are to Crocs.

  27. cassie says:

    they both seem lovely, and she is everything that defines italian women…classic, sophisticated and chic, would be nice to see the same in the UK, but like paula said, doubtfull that will happen, at least to most of the UK WAGS.

    and i agree, nice work on workin’ the par-tay kickette!!

  28. tammyv says:

    I bow in awed reverence to your awesomeness…Brilliant my darling brilliant.  You have done your leagions of kickette-ettes proud

  29. Sarah x says:

    Well Done Kickette,
    This Interview is Amazing <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    Lovee It!

  30. Paula says:

    Excellent work girls!!

    Very proud of you!! I hope you enjoyed night!!

    So there we are Brit WAGS..“Keep it sophisticated and simple”…
    somehow I don’t think the likes of Alex and Co will pay one iota to that advice.
