"Of all unimportant subjects, football is the most important" – Pope John Paul II

Larry White’s unexpected lookalike

Posted by hakanrylander on December 3, 2009

José Morais, assistant coach at Inter Milan, is dining at the “Il Gatto Nero” restaurant overlooking Lake Como. The restaurant owner, Fausto, brings a photo album to the table and shows snap-shots of famous guests.

“-Klinsmann, Matthaus, Rummenigge, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Britney Spears, Alanis Morisette, George Clooney, Avril Lavigne…

José points to a picture of Mourinho.

-Ah, Mister!

Fausto nods, turns the page and points to another picture.


José bends forward. He doesn’t recognize the old French central defender. Then Fausto corrects himself.

-No, no, no. I was wrong. That’s Cliff Richard.”

(From Swedish football magazine Offside.)

Cliff Richard?

Laurent Blanc?
