Magister quotes the summary in L'Osservatore Romano of the future Pope's thoughts:
"Football requires one to order that which is one's own to the needs of the team; it unites by means of the common objective. The success and failure of each one is based on the success and failure of the team; freedom is maintained through the order and discipline in which we learn to act together."
"As coach of the curia, Papa Ratzinger has little to rejoice in. His team does not act properly for him at all. Each player goes off on his own and every now and then lets slip an own goal."
