Never Lose Sight of Your Passion and Dreams was the headline of my interview with Christian Sotira (DOB 2001) and his parents, Sergio & Adriana and sister Alessia, in July 2017.
Now living in Italy, I caught up with Christian while on holiday in Australia. We had a chat about the difference between Australia and Italy from a football perspective. We covered many aspects of his lifestyle in a compound with 20 other players, training styles and the mental challenges living in this environment.
How is it to compete with 7 other players for a position in the team and only find out if you play the day before? Christian talk about how he deals with this and how some of the teammates relationships got affected.
If you love football, you will enjoy this interview.
