REVEALED: Southampton star Pelle former Latin-American dance champ!

Southampton's new Italy hero Graziano Pelle admits he has a Latin dance background!

Pellè was famously the Italian Latin-American dance champion at the age of 13.

"My mother wanted me to dance, my father wanted me to play football, so I did both. I always loved music and at the time I enjoyed it, but I never skipped training to dance. I skipped training because at age 11 I preferred to play with my friends rather than listen to the Coach... especially as the Coach was my uncle!"
