The last time we checked in with Kobe Bryant, he was busy acting like an average tourist, posing for photos with practically everyone at the Confederations Cup. This time around, well, it’s much of the same actually:
Still recovering from his torn achilles that ended his NBA season in April, Bryant has elected to spend a portion of his off-season rehabbing at AC Milan’s Milanello training center.
Sporting a customized Milan jersey with his name and number, Bryant spoke to AC Milan about his love for the team and his favorite Milan players. The interview might be in Italian, but we can definitely make out references to Frank Rijkaard and Marco van Basten, as well as the fact that Bryant has a Milan scarf hanging in his den in Los Angeles.
No matter the television commercials or sneaker sponsorships, it seems that Kobe is a soccer fan just like the rest of us.
