Il Campione by Leonardo D'Agostino

Young, talented and undisciplined, rich and spoilt. Christian Ferro is THE CHAMPION, a rock star of football, an unruly genius, the new idol who has captured the eyes of fans from around the world. Valerio, is both shy and solitary, and is struggling to manage his economic problems. He has a shadow from his past looming over him, but he is the professor who is assigned to the young goal scorer when, after yet another stunt, the president of the club decides that the time has come to give him some discipline. It comes in the form of a high school diploma, a significant milestone for a boy of his age. The two of them, who could not be more different from each other, will find themselves tied together, forming a bond that grows and changes them both.
