Ah Udinese, that great Italian “farm” team. Calcio’s answer to Arsenal in many ways, the Zebrette are a fantastically well-run club with intriguing, well-defined philosophies. I’m very familiar with the club’s present state but not so well read on their past. There are plenty of topics for me to discuss this week and I’ll endeavour to get through as many as possible.
One thing that immediately jumps out at me is that Udinese currently have a Scotsman on their books: Liam McCarthy, a midfielder, who is apparently on-loan at Anderlecht. As a Scotsman with an interest in calcio and my countrymen trying their luck abroad, I’d love to learn more about McCarthy and how he got to Udinese.
Tomorrow (or tonight if I find the time) I’ll deliver a quick look at Udinese’s history.
