Italian journalist Giampiero Mughini has risked a backlash after saying that Wanda Nara, the wife and agent of Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi, would “even scare Hitler.”
Nara, 32, is seen as among the most powerful women in Italian football, but has recently been at the center of scandal over her role in negotiating a new contract for her husband at Inter.
Argentine striker Icardi was stripped of the Nerazzurri captaincy in February and sidelined from the team – ostensibly with an injury – as financial talks about his future at the club turned ugly.
Nara, who is a prominent TV and social media personality in Italy, has been accused by fans and members of her husbands own family of being a disruptive influence on Icardis career and the Inter team, and seemingly driving him toward a San Siro exit.
Journalist Mughini, 77, has now attracted controversy with his comments on Naras fierce reputation on Italian television.
"In families it is always difficult, especially in a case like this where the man in question has an exceptional brilliance and is with a determined woman, a woman that if Hitler found her at night would be scared," Mughini said on the show 'Live! Non è la D'Urso', according to Marca.
Former showgirl Nara and Mughini know each other well, having appeared together on the Tiki Taka show co-hosted by the former.
The remarks came as Icardi is set to end his exile from the Inter team and could be in the frame to feature against Lazio on Sunday, which would be his first outing since losing the captains armband.
Icardi, 26, wed model Nara in 2014, after the pair reportedly started dating while she was still married to Icardis then Sampdoria teammate Maxi Lopez.
