AS Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi has become a cult hero overnight in Italy despite the nation’s World Cup disappointment.
De Rossi has already enjoyed a huge amount of respect in his homeland due to his relentless spirit and unique never-say-never approach to football and last night he only strengthened his reputation a bit more.
A fantastic video is doing rounds on social media of De Rossi yelling and swearing at a national team coach when being called to come on as a substitute.
De Rossi was angry that Italy manager wanted to put him in instead of strikers and was filmed saying “Why the f**k does he (Ventura) want to put me on? We need to win! Bring on Insigne?”.
