The source tipped BiE off to a sighting of Ettore Messina in Bologna. According to the source, Messina “wasn’t carrying any shopping bag … just a mobile phone.”
So perhaps Messina (last seen disconsolately shaking his head on the sidelines as FC Barcelona took apart his Real Madrid squad for the seventh time this season) hadn’t yet purchased anything at Bologna’s boutiques…
…or perhaps, suggests the source, the coach could have been there to discuss Georgian big man Viktor Sanikidze as a possible antidote to Pete Mickael and Barça’s inside game…?
BiE supposes we’ll have to wait and see whether Messina’s not-so-social visit bears any fruit on-court or whether the Whites have other options to explore.
Incidentally, whatever happened to that Qyntel Woods thing, anyway?
