Lazio 1992 - No.8 Gascoigne.


Paul Gascoigne was judged to be the man capable of leading Lazio into the light. The man who would kick-start a prosperous era under the new ownership of food tycoon, Sergio Cragnotti. However, whilst their club had signed a player of unquestionable talent, his was a talent underpinned by fragility, both physically and psychologically.

He was the marquee signing Cragnotti craved. But having agreed a fee of £8.5m – an astronomical sum for the pre-Murdoch First Division days – Gazza ruptured cruciate ligaments during the 1991 FA Cup final.
The setback was the first of many career-stymieing injuries, and unsurprisingly, Lazio sought instant renegotiations. The Italian’s sent a medical team to examine the player and a revised fee of £5.5 million was agreed, still a British record at the time.

True to form his jokes on team-mates and club staff were relentless. To name but a few: he put a massive ray fish on Beppe Signori's windscreen, he slipped a dead snake in Roberto Di Matteo’s jacket pocket, he took Dino Zoff’s whistle, attached it to a Turkey and released the bird on the training field, and, according to Zoff himself, Gazza had a propensity to turn up to team dinners naked.

Roma 1986 - No.9 Pruzzo.


A prolific goalscorer, Roberto Pruzzo was known as a strong and hardworking centre-forward throughout his career. With good technique, especially excellent heading ability, Pruzzo was one of the best Italian strikers of his generation and regarded as one of Roma's greatest players.

Pruzzo moved to Roma in 1979, for a then record sum of 3 billions liras, winning one Scudetto during the 1982–83 season, and four Italian Cups in 1980-81-83-86. Pruzzo's purple patch coincided with Roma's best ever era and were unlucky not to have a European cup to show for it - although Pruzzo scored the equaliser in the 1984 European Cup Final, when Roma, despite playing at home, were beaten on penalties by Liverpool.

On a personal level, Pruzzo would bag the Serie A top-scorer gong on three occasions, an achievement only eight people have ever managed.



Pruzzo went on to become one of the most celebrated players ever to don the Giallorossi shirt. On his nomination for the AS Roma Hall of Fame in 2012, Pruzzo wrote: “When we were on the pitch, we felt like we were loved. I still think that was the best-loved Roma side of all time.”
He ended his career in 1989 after a season for Fiorentina.

Barcelona 1974 - No.9 Cruyff.


The 1973–74 season saw the arrival of Johan Cruyff, who was bought for a world record £920,000 fee from Ajax, and as one would expect from the worlds outstanding footballer, he instantly had a massive impact, and would ultimately change the history of the club.

Cruyff quickly won over the Barcelona fans when he told the European press he chose Barça over Real Madrid because he could not play for a club associated with the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. He further endeared himself when he chose a Catalan name, Jordi, for his son.

A year after he moved to Camp Nou, he helped the club win La Liga for the first time since 1960, along the way defeating Real Madrid 5–0 at the Bernabéu and was also crowned European Footballer of the Year, a title he would claim twice in succession.

He returned to manage Barça in 1988, and although his impressive haul of 11 trophies has since been surpassed by his former pupil Josep Guardiola, Cruyff has been Barcelona's longest serving manager to date.
