Player Feature: Giuseppe Giannini

14 05 2010

The classic Number 10, AS Roma star Giuseppe Giannini ran the show for the Giallorossi for over a decade. After breaking through in 1981 he remained at the Stadio Olimpico despite offers from Juve and Inter all the way through to 1995. ‘Il Principe’ won 1 Scudetto and 3 Italian Cups as well as making a UEFA Cup Final appearance. His devotion to the Roma cause places him as one of the all-time greats; think Totti before Totti. Two good feet, incredible vision and an eye for goal, he was also one of the stars of Italia ’90 winning 47 caps in all for the Azzurri.

Sadly we can report that the flowing locks are now somewhat more straggly and the physique is probably best described as rotund:

Well, you can’t have everything.

Il Principe – Ghostgoal salutes you.
