Tunes With Daniele De Rossi

The world's best defensive midfielder can also rip a playlist.

Claudio Villa

Sorry, this is important news. Far more important than any nonsense that might've occurred on a pitch in the last day or two, surely.

This is the first time a musical selection has warranted such celebration. And who is it? That maniac in midfield: Daniele De Rossi. Who saw that coming? Anyone? Of course, some might not agree, as music is subjective....

No, not really. This is good music - nay, this is great music. As if DDR couldn't become any more golden in the eyes of the fanbase. And would somebody please chain Mattia Destro to Daniele's ankle? Between the musical taste and the beard, there's a clear in-house mentor/life coach begging. (Looking forward to Destro's impending crazy eyes and tattoos of street signs.)

It's not quite varied, and you could probably peg Daniele to within one or two Pandora stations, and he probably should've closed with Stairway To Heaven just to be cliched, but they needn't be varied, merely excellent - and it indeed is phenomenal. That's why the rest of the team exists - to support Daniele and Francesco. Which means all that remains is...well, one meaningful man remains. And Marquinhos listing Ai Se Eu Te Pego twelve times.

Without further ado...
