With his lung-bursting wails of sporting ecstasy now common place on our television screens – courtesy of a binge of betting advertisements – the charm of Tiziano Crudelli is wearing a little thin. The genie is out of the bottle and the Italian football commentator is no longer just the preserve of the football-blogging fraternity. And yet, every so often, we can’t help but come crawling back to the epicentre of pyrotechnic punditry.
What better time to revisit Tiziano than just after his beloved AC Milan scored one of the greatest goals in Champions League history – a 20-yard bicycle-kick goal against Anderlecht courtesy of ‘defender’ Phillipe Mexes.
Sit back, watch this clip from the Crudeli Show and enjoy the facial fireworks playing out. There’s no subtitles on this, but trust us he’s not trying to flog a 3-1 bet on West Brom beating Southampton, he’s just a very happy boy indeed. Until next time Tiziano, you crazy bastard, goodbye.
