Only in Italy

A very strange story today from Italy: recently retired Juve defender Gianluca Pessotto is in hospital after falling from a second floor window at team headquarters in Turin. He took a position as Sports Director for the team when the recent season ended. Police found him clutching a rosary and are now describing it as a potential suicide.

Apparently, Pessotto is not one of the players under suspicion in the Juventus match fixing brouhaha, and this is Italy after all, so one can only wonder what skulduggery has been going on: did he fall or was he pushed? Or has he revealed something and regretted it?

Anyway, by all accounts a decent fellow; it sounds like he will recover from his injuries and best of luck to him.
