The commentator Rai puts water on the fire of the controversy unleashed by his Argentina – Mexico commentary
“Comments on my commentary? I don’t give interviews, thanks. Messi spoke, I just transferred.” This is how he responds to Adnkronos Lele Adanireached by telephone in Qatar, throwing water on the fire and silencing the controversy sparked by his commentary in the match Argentina – Mexico of the World Cup, to which the web has not forgiven the excessive “verve” and the tenor of the comment judged too biased in favor of the Albiceleste. The second voice of Rai of the 2022 World Cup, yesterday she was excited during Leo Messi’s goals, letting herself go to a story of the very involved match which, however, did not convince many Italian fans and web users.
The sports commentator, fresh from the success of ‘bobo tv’ on Twitch together with Christian Vieri, Antonio Cassano and Nicola Ventola whose format has now landed on Rai in the late evening for the entire duration of the World Cup, had also been targeted today by theAssociation of Radio and Television Services Users, who hoped, “in the public service, a greater balance and respect for the public”. A warning that Adani however rejects to the sender, in a laconic and eloquent way.
