So it sort of changed my game as well.

“, It is a testament to his drive that Baggio managed any kind of career at all, let alone played to the point where it needed three defenders to keep him quiet. Before I met him, I watched each of Baggio’s twenty-seven goals for the Italian national team. He was out for most of the season... And yet he came back. Another does the same. For the rest of the season the shirts used by the team were without the printing on the back. Baggio glided forward, played a lovely one-two with Pierluigi Casiraghi and curled a perfect right-footed finish into the far corner. Sacchi justified his decision by stating that Baggio was not fully fit, and that Enrico Chiesa helped the team more when possession was lost.

On 21 April 2002, in the first game after his comeback, Baggio came on as a substitute to score two goals against Fiorentina, helping Brescia to win the match. At the 1998 FIFA World Cup he scored twice, before Italy were eliminated to eventual champions France in the quarter-finals. Despite his limited playing time, Baggio still managed several important goals to help Inter to a fourth-place finish, alongside Parma, such as his match winning goal against Verona, which he scored after coming off the bench, after being excluded from the team since 18 December 1999. I look at my notes and see ‘Bulgaria, 2nd goal, 1989’: probably not a goal that springs immediately to people’s minds (certainly not one I knew well before finishing my homework) but watching it now, you get a full picture of what Baggio would become. It wasn’t necessarily anything deeper than that.”. In the current season Roberto Baggio scored 0 goals. At the end of the launch, as James Richardson says his thank yous to the crowd and assorted members of press, there comes the deluge. When the contract with Diadora expired Roberto Baggio used these hand crafted total black boots made especially for him by Akuna. I’m despo for a bottle of water, fanning myself with my notebook. This is the detailed penalty statistic of Roberto Baggio of Karriereende. “That’s a fantastic goal!” Yeah, too right, Motty. For using this site, please activate JavaScript. Did the pretty ones ever mean more to you than the simple ones?”, “It all depended on the moment,” he said.

Several fans clutch 8x10 photographs of his face and big, fat Sharpies; another cradles a framed picture of his rear profile and the gilded words ‘Il Divin Codino’, yet another holds out a subscriber copy of MUNDIAL, issue two that bears his face on the cover. When I meet him downstairs, he’s standing as those around him sit. The Turin club won both legs, 1–0 at the Stadio delle Alpi and 2–0 at the Stadio Ennio Tardini. And yet people just want to ask him about the penalty.

After two years with Inter, Baggio decided not to renew his expiring contract due to his conflicts with Marcello Lippi, making him a free agent at age 33. Persistent knee injuries meant he couldn’t even train toward the end of his career, but Baggio lost none of the magic in his feet. [133] He scored again against Bologna, saving Brescia from relegation on the final matchday, and bringing his seasonal tally to 11 goals in 12 Serie A matches. I watch four kids surrounding a display of new boots, the Diadora Match Winner—premium black leather, fluro-yellow detailing, a number 10 and a signature on the heel. But he’s there, they can feel him in the building; his aura. He was operated on 4 February 2002 and he returned for three matches before the end of the season, making a recovery in 76 days. He is the sixth-highest Juventus goalscorer in the Coppa Italia with 14 goals, and the joint fourth all-time Juventus goalscorer in European and international competitions with 22 goals, alongside Anastasi.

Feb 18, 1967 (53), Place of birth: That the Bianconeri got there though was largely thanks to Baggio, who scored in the 2-2 draw in the first leg in Turin. But he was locked in, focussed. In 2004, during the final season of his career, Baggio became the first player in over 30 years to score 200 goals in Serie A, and in 2017 he was still the seventh highest goalscorer of all time in Serie A, with 205 goals. Baggio’s number 10 shirt was retired by Brescia in his honour, and he is considered the club’s greatest ever player.
