QOTD: Fabio Cannavaro Caught In ‘Enormous’ Lie

“Size has never been a problem for me.”
Er… we beg to differ, Fabio. You may claim not to remember the Photoshop D&G re-touch incident of 2006, but it is scorched into our frontal lobes to the extent that we can call it to mind on closed eyes command.
Size has most certainly been a problem for you, but not for us.

Alright, we actually took this quote completely out of context for the purposes of humour (and a visit back to that photo), but Fabio was actually referring to the fact that his height has never impeded his ability to play. He is currently on a whistle stop tour of Cambodia where he is hoping to raise the profile of football and support disadvantaged children.
But that statement was just provocative. And judging by his cheeky grin in the image above, he knows it.
