Pierluigi Collina

21st June 2004

In this weekend's Observer Magazine Pierluigi Collina talks about refereeing and about alopecia. Collina stormed out of the Italian state TV channel's 'Football Oscars' in October 2002, smashing his award to pieces, after the presenter made fun of his bald head. When asked about this Collina explained,

The illness which made my hair fall out is not a problem for me. But there are many children who have this same illness and perhaps their parents will tell them to look at me to see that to suffer from alopecia is not important. What that man said would not create a problem for me, but maybe for children who might be hurt. I was very angry. You should not disrespect people that way.

(Observer Magazine, 20/6/04)
