serie a 90s



His growing friendship with Mancini turned into an influential partnership out on the field. He was always very quick to point out any errors. Never again would he play for the San Paolo side. I still have a house there – I love that city.”. As it turned out, he got both during that sensational 22-month run without a league loss. Now director of football, he remains a constant in an ever-changing world. His Lazio debut, at home to Genoa, was one of the first Serie A games shown live on English TV: tapping into Gazzamania, Channel 4 purchased the rights in the summer of 1992. There was one last hurrah in 1999 with Parma’s UEFA Cup triumph and Lazio’s win over Mallorca in the Cup Winners’ Cup, as Pavel Nedved netted the winner at Villa Park.


Arguably one of Italian football’s most famous pictures of the ’90s was taken in Moscow. Sampdoria had just lost the derby to Genoa so, in an attempt to appease angry supporters, Mancini agreed that the squad would run around the pitch ahead of kick-off and allow fans to hurl abuse at them, on condition that there was no unrest during the game itself. Some places were more hotly contested than others: one player received 88% of the vote for his position (yes, he’s a full-back) but we had to hold a recount for one of the central midfield spots. He was an incredible player, and one of the best ever from England.”. We’d heard it was defensive and seen how many clubs had won the European Cup, but been told it was down to the ban on English teams. Neither he nor Ronaldo would win Serie A during their career at Inter, though, and the 1990s remains the only decade in the club’s 109-year history in which they failed to secure a single league title. Given those setbacks, it was a minor miracle that Capello’s charges won a third consecutive league title in 1993/94, scoring only 36 goals in 34 games. Following two-time European Cup winner Arrigo Sacchi, who had departed to take charge of the Italian national team in the summer of 1991, seemed a formidable task.
The Ballon d’Or would be his by the end of the year. A loan spell at Padova in the 1990-91 season rounded off his development and on his return he took Carlo Ancelotti’s place in Fabio Capello’s undefeated starting XI of 1991-92. Signori topped the Serie A goal chart for the decade as a whole. “The best players were playing in Serie A,” he says. The ball sat before Roberto Baggio on the penalty spot, although the Divine Ponytail wasn’t happy.

“I scored twice late on and we won 2-1 – the noise was incredible,” Platt remembers. Shortly after Gazza agreed to go to Lazio in 1991, David Platt took the plunge, making a £5.5m move to Bari – a provincial side in the south of Italy who’d narrowly avoided the drop the previous season. That included a Champions League crown in 1996: Ravanelli scored in the final as the Old Lady beat Ajax on penalties at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico after a 1-1 draw, before he was surprisingly sold to Middlesbrough. If that didn’t go down well with the Bianconeri, things were about to get a lot more difficult. “The 1990 World Cup had finished for us after our defeat to Argentina in the last 16, and we were on our way back to Brazil, waiting for our flight at Milan-Malpensa Airport. Antonio Conte ran the midfield on his own and Baggio the forward line – there wasn’t much room for anyone else. Juventus pressed for a goal, a third European Cup seemingly within their grasp, but the Champions League final then turned on the most unfortunate of deflections. Napoli, Juventus and Roma had all been interested in signing Paul Gascoigne following his displays at Italia 90, but it was Lazio who agreed a deal with Spurs in 1991.
