Juventus 1993 - No.10 Baggio.


In 1990 Roberto Baggio moved from Fiorentina to Juventus for a world record transfer fee, sparking riots in Florence.
He adopted the number ten shirt that Michel Platini had made his own in the eighties and became an instant success for 'I bianconeri'.

Predominantly played as a second forward or as an attacking midfielder, he was a versatile player comfortable attacking on both wings as well which allowed him to play in various positions along and behind the front line throughout his career.

Baggio played some sublime football during his five years at Juve, doing more than anyone to overcome the monopoly Italian football had become under Silvio Berlusconi’s Milan. His touch, finesse and vision were unparalleled. A believer in the Buddhist faith, Roberto Baggio truly was a player blessed from above.

A technical playmaker, or fantasista, he had great dribbling ability and his one on one success with the keeper was legendary, as was his set piece ability.
Baggio is currently the 6th highest goalscorer of all time in Serie A, with 205 goals.
Regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, in 1993 he was named FIFA World Player of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or.
