Iovinella flew to Budapest to visit Siffredi's Academy where he picked up the stage name Davide Montana.

Speaking of his career switch, he said: "It's not like being in bed with your partner, so you have to work hard and be stable."

Now spending his time in Budapest, he revealed his intentions to try and find a local club.

He added: "The ideal would be to find a club in Hungary."

He wouldn't be the first player to ditch a career on the pitch and venture into other bizarre work.
