Pope Francis is a well-known soccer fan. His favorite team is San Lorenzo de Almagro, one of the most important teams in Argentina, and the Pope still keeps his associate membership card for the team.
But what was unknown until now is that when he was a young boy the future Pope was a "patadura"--someone who is not very good at kicking the ball. He himself admitted this in a brief interview with the online sports news site TyC Sports of Argentina.
The interview didn't last more than a minute. The reporter asked him several questions about his love of soccer, to which the Pope gladly responded.
"Did you play soccer?" the interviewer asked. The Pope replied: "Eh, I'm a 'patadura,' not so good at it."
