Sequel of the much better 80's movie "L'allenatore nel pallone".

Banfi acted too many times as "Nonno Libero" to be able to act again as "Oronzo Canà". Tired and with no energy. Too many moments look like commercial spots, they neither try to disguise it.

Some laughs here and there. Elsewhere, much disappointment.
