safe pair of facist hands

In goal today, a fascist

Christian Abbiati isn’t your average goalkeeper

Christian Abbiati

Footballers aren’t always the ones you expect to become leading commentators on politics, but Christian Abbiati, the reserve keeper over in Milan, has hit the headlines for choosing to share his political views with the world. “I am not ashamed of showing my political beliefs,” honked the shot stopper having already dropped this bombshell on the planet: “I agree with some aspects of fascism like patriotism and the values of the Catholic religion.”

In fairness to the woefully misinformed footballer, he did go on to explain how he wasn’t a racist and wasn’t really feeling the whole Hitler thing either – he just liked the general vibe. A bit like one of those people who go to car parks to watch doggers but not actually join in, we suppose. Is that such a crime?

Word has it that he likes his defence organised. Very organised.
