When Gavin Ferguson read that football fans in Florence had set up a club in honour of The Big Lebowski, he asked them for a trial – and was given a contract
On a bitterly cold winter day in Florence, there did not seem to be anything unusual going on at CS Lebowski’s match against Resco Reggello. The fans were providing non-stop vocal support, as usual, but there was one new face in the stands that day: the London-born Gavin Ferguson, who was not just there as a visitor.
The 27-year-old had been living in a few different countries with his Argentinian girlfriend but, swayed by her Italian ancestry and their love of the country’s food and football, they decided to settle in Italy. They looked around Matera and Rome, but made Florence their new home at the end of last year.
