The Italian media allege that Milan hitman Marco Borriello’s goal drought is down to the rumours about his girlfriend Belen Rodriguez.
Former Genoa striker Marco Borriello re-joined Milan this summer, but in spite of his prolific season at the Stadio Marassi, he is failing to live up to his reputation this term with theRossoneri, and has hit the back of the net only once in Serie A - in the away game with Reggina back in September.
He squandered a host of gilt-edged chances at the Stadio Via del Mare in Lecce last night, and his profligate ways cost Milan dearly as Andrea Esposito popped up to head in a free-kick in stoppage-time. So Carlo Ancelotti’s men were forced to content themselves with a single point after dominating for large spells.
And some in the peninsula claim that the Neapolitan forward is not fully focused of late due to off-the-pitch issues that also followed him to Apulia, as Salentini fans kept shouting “Rossano” throughout the game.
This mysterious Rossano would be Rossano Rubicondi, an Italian latin lover who allegedly had an affair with Borriello’s beautiful girlfriend Belen Rodriguez on the TV show L’Isola dei Famosi, the Italian version of Survivor.
And according to Italian newspaper Il Secolo XIX, the relationship with the Argentine model is nearing its end as she revealed to another contestant yesterday: “I am single now.”
