De Rossi: 'El Shaarawy's hair...'

Daniele De Rossi revealed why he will no longer mock Stephan El Shaarawy for the obsession with his hair. “He won Roma a derby.”

The midfielder answered a series of questions on his Italy teammates, including how long it takes The Little Pharaoh to do his famous Mohican.

“I used to mock him for the amount of time he spent fiddling with his hair, looking in the mirror and adjusting it.

“That even made him stop trying to head the ball as he didn’t want to mess it up, but then he won Roma a derby with a header this season and shut me up.

“So I promised not to make fun of him anymore!”

De Rossi did joke about Lorenzo Insigne’s “lack of height,” standing at 1.63m, and Salvatore Sirigu’s poor record on the Playstation. “He’s a victim in everything, but above all on the Playstation, as he really is terrible.”

He did not guess that Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva would’ve been an electrician if he had not made a career in football.
