Sven’s First Eleven

‘A WOMAN publicly humiliated by her man can react in any number of ways.

‘Gary, I can’t fault the girl. She’s given 110%…’

Who could have guessed that Posh would have responded to Day-vid’s alleged affair(s) by wearing a string of T-shirts?

She could have pruned her husband’s ardour with pair of Lorena Bobbit own-brand secateurs or thrown herself down the stairs a la Lady Di.

And then there’s the path chosen by Nancy Dell’Olio. When Nancy’s lover, England coach Sven Goran Eriksson, cheated on her with Ulrika Jonsson, she kept her cool.

She didn’t pick up one of her man’s Cuban heels and ram it into his inviting cranium, or do a Stan Collymore and beat Ulrika with her fists.

She merely immersed herself further into her lover’s life. And that meant a change in style, from the way she dressed to the way she spoke.

And so we imagine Nancy sitting at her bureau chez Eriksson writing her beauty column while dressed in an England football shirt, shorts and shin pads, and talking about giving it 110%.

That’s the veritable ’11 out of 10′, a score Nancy gives herself when it comes to looks.

The Mirror says that when asked how she rated herself on a scale of 1 to 10, Nancy replied: ‘I feel that I am an 11.’

To the Star, this makes her a ‘big-headed beauty’, but to those well versed in her lover’s business, it’s the customary score given to a decent showing.

But there is always room for improvement. Just like Sven’s teams, Nancy strives for perfection and, when asked what she would like to return as in her next life, she simply replied: ‘An improved version of me.’

So here’s to Nancy coming back to her own stomping ground and giving it the full 200%.’
