Fiorentina 1986 - No.10 Baggio.

The mercurial Roberto Baggio's performances for the Fiori elevated him to hero status among the fans and rioting broke out when he was sold to Juventus in 1990.
Baggio replied to his fans, saying: "I was compelled to accept the transfer".

In his first match for Juventus against Fiorentina Baggio refused to take a penalty, stating that Fiorentina's goalkeeper knew him too well. Then when substituted, he picked up a Fiorentina scarf thrown onto the field, a gesture which caused outrage amongst the Juventus supporters, who were initially reluctant to accept Baggio. He later claimed: "Deep in my heart I am always purple".

His characteristics led former Fiorentina playmaker, Miguel Montuori, to state that Baggio was: "…more productive than Maradona; he is without doubt the best number 10 in the league", also stating that Baggio had "ice in his veins", due to his composure in front of goal.
