“I am Greek Orthodox,” he says. “It’s a big part of me. It’s the way I have been brought up. As much as I can, I try and practice that and go to Church at Easter. So yes, it’s a big part of who I am. I used to go to Greek school when I was younger. But now I know more Italian because I lived there. But I am sure if I lived in Greece for a year then I would pick up the language straight away as well. I’m sure that if some Greek clubs found that I have a Greek passport there would be a little bit of interest. But I don’t think people know, because my surname is Italian.”
