Vincenzo Grella to Rovers
This Socceroo hottie (with Italian decent, not dissent) has joined the Blackburn Rovers on a 5-year contract for an undisclosed fee. Grella, 28, formerly played for Torino, Parma, and Empoli of Serie A. The defensive midfielder is the fifth signing for Ince and will be joining his Australia teammate Brett Emerton at Ewood Park.
For the ladies who are enjoying this new addition to the Premier League, Grella is currently married and has twin daughters, Victoria and Sophia. And according to Wikipedia, Vince met his wife, Barbara, when she worked in a shoe store in Italy. Apparently he enjoyed their first meeting so much that he returned multiple times to do some shoe shopping... oh vomit.
