If someone else is going to go to the trouble of picking out and rewarding their favourite Serie A players, it would be remiss of us not to use the photo opportunity for a random post.
Last week was the Gran Gala’ del calcio, an awards ceremony where the great and the good of Italian football (players, coaches, journos) vote on categories such as Player of the Year, Manager of the Year and of course, the highly competitive Dodgy ‘Do of the Year.**
It’s a given that we’re less interested in the awards than what the players looked like.

Either his centre parting is so vigorous it’s changing the shape of his face, or Zlatan is warming up one of his famed Bitch faces. We seriously hope, for the sake of the footballing glitterati present, that it’s the former.
Bad stand-up comedian or casual footballer about town? It could go either way with Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale.
Attracted to Ibra? Amazed by Edinson? Or appalled by Prince Boateng?
