APPIANO GENTILE – Paolo Sacco’s dream journey towards Madrid continues. The Inter season ticket holder, who was given a ticket for the Champions League final by José Mourinho yesterday, visited Inter’s training ground this morning to thank the Portuguese coach in person.
"I have with me the money to give to charity, as the boss asked me too. I can give it to the captain’s PUPI Foundation right away," said Paolo, who was the first person in the queue for the 5,000 remaining tickets.
Javier Zanetti explained to Paolo what he needs to do: make the donation at the PUPI headquarters in via Corno di Cavento, 7, in Milan.
"I will go on Monday," assured Paolo, who then went into the press room for his meeting with Mourinho. And the Inter coach wanted to know everything about the season ticket holder, who works as a waiter in Milan. "If you want I will come here to serve the players," he said. "How will I go to Madrid? By car, coach, or bike, but thanks to you, I will be there."
"Always behave well," said Mourinho. "You are an Inter fan, you are a lucky boy, you can see the training session with your friend. Now concentrate on the game in Siena."
Trembling, Paolo embraced the coach and whispered: "My voice, my whole voice for the team. Always." Bravo Paolo.
