English-Italian singer Jack Savoretti spoke to Goal.com about how he ended up in the shower with Italy and Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero, what’s influenced the sound of his new album and more as part of the leading football website’s Goal Playlist series on YouTube.
The 35-year-old also spoke about his love for Serie A side Genoa. The acoustic singer-songwriter was at the Rossoblù’s infamous European Cup win over Liverpool in 1992 and filmed the video for his 2015 single ‘Home’ at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris before the 1-0 win over Juventus.
