During this evening’s episode of Live-Non è la D’Urso, broadcast on Canale 5, Nicolò Zenga, one of Walter Zenga’s three sons, confirmed the fact that he had proposed a book containing various accusations against his father at the houses publishers. Biagio D’Anelli, the columnist of the programs conducted by Barbara D’Urso who has always defended the coach and former Inter goalkeeper, provided the proof, having come in possession of the preface of this book.
Barbara D’Urso, with the permission of Nicolò Zenga, read the strongest sentences contained in the preface:
“From an early age, my father treated me like a burden, almost as if I bothered him” / “When he came back after the game, I couldn’t wait to hug him but for him it was more important to read the Gazzetta in peace” / “He was capable of being a father, he just didn’t want to do it with us” / “When I told him how much his absence had made me suffer, he replied that I was nobody to judge his life”.
At the height of the discussion, Walter Zenga also suggested that his son Nicolò change his surname.
Biagio D’Anelli and Nicolò Zenga discussed, with the columnist who accused Zenga’s son of being more interested in “making a show” than “making peace with his father”.
Nicolò Zenga, confirming the existence of this email sent to the publishing houses, made it clear that his intent was never to point the finger at his father:
I came to you for the first time, Barbara, so as not to point the finger at anyone otherwise I would have let this thing out. This mail exists but I never wanted to show it. I didn’t bring it.
Jacopo Zenga, now a guest on Domenica Live and present in the studio, was not aware of this book. Nicolò, regarding his brother, has released these statements:
Before publishing it, I would have advised those in charge. Jacopo and I talked often, he too had some problems with our father but he overcame them.
Jacopo Zenga signed the words of his brother:
I have never said that I have always been in love and good with dad. I have overcome the problems, perhaps temperamentally we are different.
For the record, Walter Zenga was also defended by his former teammate in the studio, Fulvio Collovati:
Walter was a bit of a “Gascon” boy, a bit of a narcissist but he was a boy of rare sensitivity. We have been vacationing together for thirty years. I remember Walter with my daughter in his arms. These gestures are part of a man’s sensitivity that cannot completely disappear. I appeal to Walter, who extends a hand to these two boys. Walter is not like that.
