Gianluca Pagliuca turns on Olimpia-Virtus.

Gianluca Pagliuca, a big Virtus fan, lights up the challenge between Olimpia Milano and the Bianconeri. Teasing Ettore Messina a bit. “Brescia-Bologna, a disaster. Last of the championship, we could have gone to Champions, we ended up in the Intertoto. Flight to Casalecchio, final with Panathinaikos, sure to make up for it. +18 for us, in the first half a domination and instead we lose it, with Ettore also putting in his own. I share with many virtussini fans the same bitter memory of that Sunday. In addition, I had taken three pears in Brescia. Bachini, Baggio, Toni,” he tells Repubblica Bologna.

“I have been a Virtus fan since I was a child. I used to do the double, as they say in Bologna. First the stadium, then the palace. I also paid fines of two million lire. Simoni gave it to me; he was right. I asked him to go one night to the Euroleague derby, the one that ended in a brawl. On Sunday we were playing Inter in Udine, we were in the race for the Scudetto, Gigi didn’t want any distractions and told me: no. I went anyway, Tele+ framed me, he saw me and took it badly.”
