Hundred-word Hero

[In honour of one of my favourite Italian football journalists and bloggers, Giancarlo Rinaldi, and his ‘Hundred-word Hero’ series, here is my attempt at the genre, published by him here]

He was brooding. He was temperamental. He could fail to hit the side of a barn one minute, score sublimely the next.  He was our Montenegrin flawed genius. He was Vucigol.

He had a knack for the dramatic. A last minute goal specialist – not for the faint of heart. He was a high-octane, unpasteurised, parental guidance compulsory, batteries not included, big game player. He gave the teams we love to hate reasons to hate us back.

Pants off, Y-fronts exposed to the world, arms open wide – VENI, VIDI, VUCINIC!

He’s gone to Juventus, but we’ll forgive him. Eventually.
