The World Cup is about to start and the Italians are understandably excited about it. So naturally McDonald’s Italy decided to team up with a man who has actually lifted the trophy.
Enter former midfield pitbull and headbutter of the elderly, Gennaro Gattuso. The 36-year-old, who was recently appointed as Head Coach of Greek side OFI Crete, stepped behind the counter and served some happy customers.
Now you may think that a man as hirsute and prone to rage as Gattuso may not be suited to such a role (think of finding those dark hairs in your fries) but he seemed to take to it reasonably well.
Here on the Paddy Power Blog there’s few things we find as strange as a once-quiet footballer suddenly popping up to work with a big brand. Ahem.
It is as yet unclear as to whether Gattuso will be given any administerial authority but you get the feeling that he’d happily sack the bloke to his right.
