Roberto Baggio is one of greatest number 10’s in history. Flair, finishing and a magnificent pony tail. In 1990 Baggio joined Juventus for £8 million. A world record transfer for a footballer at the time. He took over the number 10 shirt, formerly worn by, now head of UEFA, Michel Platini.
In his first season at Juventus in 1990/91 he scored 27 goals. He was the top goal scorer in the Cup Winners Cup run – until Juventus got knocked out by Barclona. Baggio scored some beautiful goals. Dribbles. Long shots. Freekicks. Have a watch below.
Former Fiorentina manager Aldo Agroppi loved him
The angels sing in his legs.
David Platt said he was the best he’s seen
One game stands out in particular, one against Ancona which we won 5–1. Baggio scored four goals in the first 20 minutes and killed the game off. I don’t think I’ve seen a better performance from any player in any game I’ve ever played in. As footballers go, he’s a genius.
So did Matt Le Tiss
Roberto Baggio was the best player I ever played against; he made football look very easy.
