A mate of mine has given me a Controcampo top, which is pretty cool. He knows one of the producers on the show - she, amusingly, has no interest in football at all, but has just been transferred there from another part of Mediaset, and is responsible for managing live broadcasts from San Siro.
First time out, they ask her to secure an interview with Ibrahimovic after the game. None of her staff are free, so she sets off herself to find him. The only problem is, she has no idea who he is. She spots a chap in a suit hurrying along the corridor, some kind of Inter flunky, and stops him.
Excuse me, do you think you could possibly ask Ibrahimovic to come and do an interview?
He stares at her unsmiling for a long moment. Are you taking the piss? he asks finally.
She has a moment's panic that she's pronounced the name wrong. No, she says, they want him for Controcampo.... do you know where he is?
Another pause. I am Ibrahimovic, he says, deeply unamused.
haha oops. Oh, says she all flustered, sorry... He follows her over to the interview suite, and she explains, we're just going to a publicity break, then you'll be on live. He raises an eyebrow. I have to wait til after the adverts? Oh no, he says, removing the earpiece, I'm not waiting. And he stalks away down the corridor.
