Cardinal dreams of Vatican FC
Comment Email Print
 One day, the Vatican could form its own football team, good enough to compete with Italy's top sides, according to the Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. The Cardinal said: "I do not preclude the possibility that the Vatican, in the future, could put together a football team of great value, that could play on the same level as Roma, Inter Milan and Sampdoria." The seminaries and Catholic youth clubs around Italy were full of talented footballers that might challenge famous clubs like Roma, Inter Milan and Sampdoria, he explained. Cardinal Bertone said the proposed team would, of course, wear the Vatican's yellow-and-white colours. Cardinal Bertone is a diehard Juventus supporter. When he was Archbishop of Genoa, he often commentated on Sampdoria games for local TV.
