Napoli 1999.


Having dropped out of the top flight in 1998, Napoli returned to Serie A after gaining promotion in the 1999–2000 season, though after a closely contested relegation battle, they were relegated immediately back down the following season.

This time it proved to be financially disastrous and the club could not recover, being declared bankrupt in 2004. They were eventually reinstated but had to give up there title Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli and became Napoli Soccer.

Lazio 1998 - No.13 Nesta.


Alessandro Nesta won all that there is as a player, and he did it with dignity and class. He came from a breed of defenders that made defending an art, executing slide tackles with the utmost timing and grace.

Widely considered to be one of the best centre backs of his generation, he played over 200 games for Lazio in nine seasons and was a key component in Lazio's 'golden age' of the late nineties.

Nesta's performances and success for Lazio during this period earned him three consecutive Serie A Defender of the Year awards between 2000 and 2002.


Financial problems for Lazio and then President Sergio Cragnotti led to the sale of Nesta to Milan in 2002 for €30,987,000. During this time, he would form a formidable defensive line alongside Paolo Maldini, Cafu, Alessandro Costacurta and Jaap Stam, among others.

Fiorentina 1996 - No.10 Rui Costa.


In Florence, city of the Renaissance, and just as legendary long-haired artists in the forms of Antognoni and Baggio had adorned the viola 10 shirt, Manuel Rui Costa used the Artemio Franchi pitch as his creative canvas.

A true midfield conductor, his style led to the nickname “il Maestro di Fiorenze” – the Maestro of Florence, however, despite a lack of genuine pace – although he seemed to glide around the pitch – his close control and dribbling abilities made sure he operated mostly as a trequartista rather than a functioning metronome in the deeper laying regista role.

Boca Juniors 1991 - No.9 Batistuta.


Gabriel Batistuta initially played basketball as a kid but after Argentina's victory in the 1978 World Cup, in which he was particularly impressed by the skills of Mario Kempes, he devoted himself to football.

Having played one season at bitter arch-rivals River Plate, Batistuta signed for Boca in 1990. He initially found it hard to find his best form, in part to not playing in his favoured position of striker.
However, at the beginning of 1991 Oscar Tabárez became Boca's coach, and he gave Batistuta the chance up front. 'Batigol' as he became known became the league's top scorer that season as Boca won the championship.
