” Antonio Insigne told Il Mattino newspaper.
“Lorenzo came to all my games growing up. However, we then took different paths, as I am in the amateur leagues, while they are in Serie A. It’s an honor for me to have two brothers in the top flight who are having such wonderful careers. That’s rare for a family to have two in different Serie A clubs.
Having said that, obviously I am the real talent in the family! I always tell them that!
