Tiziano Crudeli (Italian pronunciation: [titˈtsjano kruˈdɛli]; born 24 June 1943 in Forlì), is an Italian television presenter and sports journalist. Until the age of 30, Crudeli worked as a sales representative, but quit to take on the role as secretary at the Milan Regional Committee of the Italian Tennis Federation, eventually moving on to press secretary.
He used this as a springboard to work on other television broadcasts, most notably for the actual AC Milan channel on Sky Italy, while he frequently writes columns for the sport’s weekly publication Sprint & Sport Lombardia. Crudeli is a lifelong AC Milan fan, where he is also currently a press officer.
Because of his passionate, enthusiastic and unique football commentary, Crudeli has become something of a celebrity in Italy, and has since 2011 become the face of an English television advertising campaign for Ladbrokes.
