Lazio 2000 - No.9 Salas.


Marcelo Salas never played more than 100 games for a any single club and only played in Italy for five years, but for Lazio, in the years 1998–2001, he was a key catalyst in helping turn around a team that hadn't won a Scudetto since 1974.

Lazio's second title success came in chaotic circumstances in the 1999-2000 season as a team bankrolled by Cirio magnate Sergio Cragnotti, coached by Sven-Goran Eriksson and inspired by the likes of Salas, Veron, Nesta, Simeone and Nedved snatched glory away from Juventus on the final day of the campaign, with the Turin side all but needing to beat lowly Perugia.

With the 'Biancocelesti' Salas also won an Italian cup, a Cup Winners' Cup and a European Super Cup, scoring the match's only goal in the latter, in a 1-0 win over Manchester United.
In 2001 he was transferred to Juventus where Salas would endure the worst moments of his career; he was hampered by injuries, allowing him to participate in only 14 games and scoring just 2 goals in two seasons and was eventually loaned to River Plate.
