Juventus 1990 - No.10 Baggio.


Roberto Baggio joined Juventus from Fiorentina amongst much furore in 1990, inheriting Michel Platini's number 10 shirt.
He led his new team to glory in the 1993 UEFA Cup, and his performances earned him the European and World footballer of the year awards.
Baggio played some sublime football during his five years in Bianconeri, doing more than anyone to overcome the monopoly Italian football had become under Silvio Berlusconi’s Milan. His touch, finesse and vision were unparalleled - Baggio truly was a player blessed from above.

Baggio scored 115 goals in 200 appearances during his five seasons at Juventus, but by the time he finally won his first league title in 1995, he had become a periphery figure due to the emergence by the new golden boy of Italian football, Alessandro Del Piero, and was sold to Milan in 1995.

Much respected Italian coach Carlo Mazzone once remarked "Roberto Baggio was the best Italian fantasista; he was better than Meazza and Boniperti, and he was amongst the greatest of all time, right behind Maradona, Pelè, and maybe Cruyff. Without the injury problems and the difficulties with his knees, he would have been the very best player in history."
