You can’t effectively shout at your teammates in the tunnel if you don’t speak their language, so Joe Hart, on loan from Man City at Torino, is working on his Italian. He demonstrated this during a press conference by reading a prepared statement and received a round of applause for his effort.

It probably isn’t a coincident that Joe Hart has announced his intent to learn Italian after his new club mistakenly listed him as John Hart on the team sheet.
