For the former Juventus, Parma and Hellas Verona striker, a new adventure beyond national borders begins as assistant coach of the Melbourne Victory, coached by Tony Popovic (he was on the field with Australia against Italy in the 2006 World Cup) and committed to his first league match (tomorrow, November 20, 7.45pm). local time, in Italy at 9.45 a.m.), away from home, against Western United played by playmaker Alessandro Diamante, 38, the star footballer in the land of the kangaroos. It will take place immediately in the Italian Derby.
However, it would be the former striker Cammarata’s record number one: he is the first-ever Italian coach to make his debut in the Australian First Division. The Sicilian player has not yet trained in Italy, but only abroad: first in Russia at the hands of Terek Grozny, then even in distant Oman and in recent seasons in Albania, with Dinamo Tirana and Apollonia Fier. Since last July he has arrived in Melbourne and, after much preparation, it is time to make his A-League debut. “For me first and foremost a great opportunity for human and cultural growth, before football. I am very happy, this city is wonderful – says Camarata from Australia -. Language? Now I can deal with English, but football on the pitch has a global language How did you get here? Former football player Grella, now the attorney general, suggested this adventure to me and I agreed on the spot.”
