Italy manager Antonio Conte, who is apparently more monster than man, has decided to ban his players from eating anything that tastes good (plus carrots) as they prepare for Euro 2016.
From Football Italia:
According to La Stampa newspaper, he will get the Azzurri ready for Euro 2016 by banning snacks, pasta (apart from that made from Khorasan wheat, also known as Kamut), grissini, pizza and sweets.
Carrots are also on the negative list due to their sugar content.
Coverciano and the training camp mini-bars will have no supply of ice cream, crisps or croissants.
Clearly the man has learned nothing from Claudio Ranieiri. And a carrot ban seems misguided at best.
Anyway, this policy will likely get Italy eliminated in the group stage since all of their players will wish they are dead.
