2016-05-20

The Pope reflected on how much influence athletes have on young people before the players of the two finalist teams of the soccer Italian Cup, Juventus and AC Milan.

POPE FRANCIS
"You attract the attention of these people that admire you, and therefore you are called to behave so that you can always emphasize the human qualities of athletes, committed to showing the true values of sport.”

He told them to fight for being champions of the sport, but above all, champions in life.

Among those present were young stars like Paulo Dybala and ancient glories of world football, like Pavel Nedvd.

"Thank you for your words. We will keep them in our mind, but especially in our heart."

The team leaders of Juventus and AC Milan gave him their jersey, while those responsible for the Italian championship gave him a ball and a small replica of the cup being played tomorrow.
