Ex-Roma coach Spalletti to coach criminals

I'm biting my tongue from saying lots of people involved in Italian soccer are criminals.

But Luciano Spalletti is going to manage actual convicts in a unique game coming up Saturday.
According to La Repubblica, the Italian will take part in a specially organised match that will see members of parliament take on convicted criminals on a prison football pitch in Massa.
It's prisoners, police officers and local politicians versus the parliamentary team.

Apparently the event is supposed to shed light on prison life. I wonder how physical it might get.

You know those Italians...
