Report cards of the sports weekend: Tonali, useless to oppose (6).  Rivera as Al Pacino (8).  Gama (8) furious but no controversy, please


Georges Simenon wrote books up to the age of 77 (the last one, «Memorie Intime», an autobiographical novel, is dedicated to his daughter who committed suicide), Martins Scorsese at 80 continues to direct his actors, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino become fathers at 79 and 83 years old. And shouldn't Gianni Rivera want to coach at the age of 80? The lengthening life expectancy moves the boundaries of dreams a little further, the elderly Golden Boy wants to indulge himself in one last whim in the environment that he branded fifty years ago (route to Bari, but it does not exclude other piazzas) and we wish him a seat on a bench soon, in his own way: with his white tuft combed to the left and the eternal boyish smile. He has a coaching licence: «I got it three years ago in Coverciano, and not to keep it in the drawer or put it on the bulletin board». Certainly football has changed compared to its times, changed is an understatement, the number 10s like Rivera have become extinct along the way, there is no longer a piece of furniture in the world equal to the 60s, because that's where this wonderful ageless turtle comes. Can you see Gianni talking about active offside, restarts, dead balls, short-nosed victories? Sublime. A vintage and classy touch to a certain coarseness of the Italian championship.
