The father of Lecce goal-keeper Wladimiro Falcone admitted his son is a Roma supporter.

In a recent interview with Sportitalia, Wladimiro Falcone’s father discussed his son’s rise in Serie A and love for Roma since childhood years.

“His biggest hero was Francesco Antonioli,” he said, referring to the legendary shot-stopper who was part of the Scudetto winning team in 2001.

“He was his personal hero and the man he aspired to be. He wanted to become exactly like him. Yes, it’s not a secret, my son is a Roma fan.”
