Let’s be honest, shit is real right now and has been for months. We are seeing an invisible killer wreak so much havoc globally, infecting and killing thousands of people. It does not discriminate, it doesn’t care who its victims are. It is on every continent not named Antarctica and is still growing.

While this is not the first time we have dealt with a global pandemic or the first time we have had to band together for survival, it can still be scary. It is during these times that we look to those who can provide comfort, guidance, empathy and tranquility. Already a leader in Italian sports, Fiorentina Women’s coach, Antonio Cincotta, has been a much needed voice of reason during these tragic times.

We were fortunate enough to speak with Antonio through Zoom, an app that he is using to stay in touch with his players through this lock down. Antonio dives deep into the impact of the coronavirus in Italy, the women’s team, and how we can all help through Rocco Commisso’s Forza e Cuore Gofundme.

Huge thank you again to Cincotta, who is, as you can see, the coolest and most sensible guy in any room.
